Two Harlem Globetrotters visited Angels camp to get some helpful baseball tips

The Harlem Globetrotters are good at basketball. That's their thing -- people buy tickets to see them pull off crazy basketball tricks. Baseball, on the other hand, is not so much their thing. People buy tickets to see professional baseball teams, like the Angels, pull off crazy baseball tricks, not the Globetrotters.

So when it comes to shagging fly balls on the warning track, the Angels have some things to show the Globetrotters.


Globetrotters Orlando Melendez and Buckets Blakes (unfortunately no David Ross)  visited Angels Spring Training on Thursday along with NASCAR drivers Bubba Wallace and Ryan Blaney to get some baseball lessons from the professionals.

The 6-foot-8 Melendez looked pretty tall on the mound, yes, but he's still a few inches shy of Loek van Mil.


Watch the clip above to hear Angels prospect Keynan Middleton talk about teaching the Globetrotters some baseball tips.
