Kelce, of course, is a native of the area, having grown up in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, as a three-sport athlete.

He led the Cleveland area with a .538 batting average as a senior and was even rumored to flirt with 90 mph off the mound as a pitcher.

In fact, when Kelce was kicked out of University of Cincinnati football for marijuana use in 2010, he briefly pursued a career in baseball playing summer ball in a wood bat league.

“He was playing right field,” said Brian Cleary, former University of Cincinnati baseball coach and now a scout for the Washington Nationals. The Athletic. “As they go in and out (warmups) and he plays before the game, he’s the best baseball pitcher I’ve ever seen, to this day, in my life.”

However, those abilities were called into question when Kelce threw out a now-infamous first pitch for his hometown Cleveland Guardians last year.

Kelce appeared in the game alongside other NFL stars Myles Garrett and Amari Cooper.

Kelce’s shot bounced off the infield grass and bounced off the backrest toward the photographers.

He immediately ran to see Guardian pitcher Shane Bieber, who was crouched behind home plate but never had a chance to catch the errant throw.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who also pitched in college and is the son of a former major league player, responded on Twitter with a series of laughing emojis.

‘Ayyy @Royals, let’s give him another chance. As soon as possible!!!’ he wrote.

While Kelce is enjoying his NFL offseason with some softball, his girlfriend Swift is touring Europe.

The pop star will be in Edinbugh, Scotland, over the weekend before traveling to Liverpool.
