Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes has earned his fair share of attention over the last three weeks - and for good reason.
The 23-year-old signal caller has thrown the most touchdowns of any player through the first three weeks of a season in NFL history while commanding the top statistical offense in the league.
It’s been a performance that’s thrust Mahomes onto the national stage, but this is hardly his first time in the spotlight.
In fact, his ability to come up clutch was featured on ESPN when he was just 14 years old.
Mahomes competed in the Junior League Baseball World Series back in 2010, helping lead the squad from his hometown of Tyler, Texas to the tournament’s championship game against Chinese Taipei.
The kid has been impressing for a while now, but the highlight left tight end Travis Kelce wanting more.
Unbeknownst to Kansas City’s All-Pro tight end, Mahomes homered in Tyler’s semi-final victory over a team from California that won the United States Championship a few days prior. The Chiefs’ young quarterback took the high road, however, and defended his RBI single.
Talented as he may have been, it’s safe to say that Kansas City is glad that Mahomes chose football.
