Drake playing softball for charity during Houston Appreciation Week is a beautiful thing

Drake can do anything. He raps, he sings, he plays softball for charity. He brings joy to the world.

When Drake hosted a charity softball game on Friday night as part of Houston Appreciation Week to support the Astros Urban Youth Academy, his skills were on full display:

And look how happy he is at bat:

Pretty good form from Mr. Graham -- he must be a baseball fan. This confirms our suspicions that Drake's song "Hold On, We're Going Home" is actually about driving in runs on the diamond and the line "running through the six with my woes" from "Know Yourself" is a mishearing of "running to first base like whoa." Perhaps Drake's love of baseball is where the moniker October's Very Own comes from.

Honestly, Drake playing sports for a good cause is one of the wholly good things in this world. It makes us feel like this:
