James Corden Takes a Swing at Major League Baseball


THAT FEELS A BIT HEAVY.
THAT’S TOO HEAVY. THAT’S TOO HEAVY.
HEY! HOW ARE YOU? NICE TO SEE YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING
DOWN TO HELP ME. NOW I’VE NEVER PLAYED BASEBALL.
I’VE NEVER HELD A BASEBALL BAT, AND TONIGHT I’M GOING TO BE
HITTING IN THE ANGEL STADIUM IN FRONT OF 50,000 PEOPLE.
SO I NEED A BIT OF HELP. DO YOU THINK YOU CAN HELP ME?
>>THAT’S WHY WE’RE HERE. JAMES: HOW EMBARRASSING WOULD IT
BE TO NOT CON TPWHECT THE BALL AT ALL.
>>I DON’T THINK THERE’S ANY EXPECTATIONS THAT YOU WILL
CONNECT. JAMES: TALK TO ME ABOUT
SPITTING. IT’S IMPORTANT TO SPIT A LOT,
RIGHT? CROTCH GRAB. I HAVE TO ADJUST MY OWN CROTCH
BECAUSE ON THE SHOW I HAVE SOMEONE DO THAT FOR ME.
HOW SHOULD I APPROACH THE PLATE? SHOULD I COME IN WITH PIZZAZZ OR
COME IN LIKE I MEAN BUSINESS.>>I LIKE THE SPITTING.
JAMES: IS THE BUTT WAY OUT. IF YOU HIT A HOME RUN YOU WANT A
BAT FLIP.>>WATCH IT FOR A SECOND.
AND NOW GO. JAMES: BAM, LOOK AT THE PITCHER. STEP OFF INTO A SURROUND OF
HIGH-FIVES AND BUM PATS. YOU DO A LOT OF THE BUM PATS?
I’M INTO THE BUM PATS. STICK ONE ON ME. MAKE IT COUNT. AT SOME POINT TODAY THERE’S
GOING TO BE A MOMENT WHERE YOU’LL TELL ME THERE’S NO CRYING
IN BASEBALL. THAT’S WHAT I IMAGINE IS GOING
TO HAPPEN.>>I’M GOING TO BE THROWING FROM
THE PITCHER’S MOUND FROM 60 FEET.
YOUR GOAL IS TO STEP ON THE PLATE. RIGHT. THAT LOOKS A BIT FAST.>>I WON’T HIT YOU.
JAMES: RIGHT. I SHOULD BE LIKE IN A FULL BODY
SUIT, YOU KNOW? HAVE I ANNOYED YOU OR SOMETHING?>>YES.
JAMES: WAIT THERE. NOW I’M READY. DOUBLED UP.
YOU’RE NOT GETTING NEAR THE PRIZE. HERE WE GO.
HANG ON. HANG ON. AH.
OH. TERRIBLE.
>>THAT’S IT. [APPLAUSE]
>>I CAN’T FEEL MY HAND THOUGH. WHY DON’T YOU PLAY WITH A SOFTER
BALL? [LAUGHTER]
WHOO! IN TERMS OF CELEBRATIONS IF I
KNOCK IT RIGHT OUT OF THE PARK WHICH WE’RE ALL EXPECTING THAT I
MIGHT.>>TAKE THREE STEPS, FLIP THE
BAT IN THE AIR AND TAKE YOUR TIME.
JAMES: WOULD IT BE FROWNED UPON IF I CALL AN UBER TO GO AROUND
THE BASES. HOW SHOULD I APPROACH THE CROWD?>>DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE PEOPLE
CHEERING AND BOOING YOU AND WHATNOT.>>FOCUS, FOCUS, LOOK AT THE
BASEBALL. JAMES: SORRYINGS I SWITCHED OFF
— SORRY, I SWITCHED OFF. WHAT WAS THAT WORD YOU SAID? SORRY. AH! JAMES: I’M IN THE BATTING CAGE
IN THE DUGOUT JUST DOING SOME WARMING UP.
I LOOK LIKE THAT PICTURE OF CHRIS CHRISTIE WHEN HE LAYED IN
A CELEBRITY BENEFIT. THAT’S WHAT I LOOK LIKE. LET’S JUST HOPE FOR THE BEST.
WELL, I’VE BEEN CALLED OUT. HERE WE GO.
[APPLAUSE] [LAUGHTER]
HERE WE GO. SORRY, DO YOU KNOW WHERE THE
FIELD IS? KEEP GOING THIS WAY. OK.
THANKS VERY MUCH. NICE OF MY AGENT TO COME DOWN
AND WATCH ME DO THIS.>>JAMES CORDEN HOST OF
AMERICA’S LATE LATE SHOW APPEARING AT 12:30.
JAMES CORDEN. ♪
JAMES: THAT’S A FOUL BALL. IT’S A FOUL BALL.
IT’S A FOUL BALL. IT’S [BEEP]! IT’S A FOUL BALL.
ONE MORE. [LAUGHTER]
