Marquette King is a talented punter who’s always got football on his mind, apparently.
Case-in-point, the Oakland Raiders punter visited the Oakland Athletics in Arizona taking batting practice with the team. Instead of wearing a batting helmet, King took swings in the batter’s box wearing a Raiders football helmet.

It looks like King can swing the bat, but he might want to stick to his day job.
The 29-year-old looked great in A’s colors.

He also delivered a solid, slightly out of the strike zone first pitch.

King appeared to have a fun day with the A’s – even if football is obviously his calling.
Up next, the Raiders’ punter needs to get some Athletic players to try punting. Pro athletes attempting other sports is always something which brings entertaining results – just like King does here.
