Florida Deputy Stops for Pickup Baseball Game - and Crushes It

A Lee County sheriff’s deputy took a moment to play with a travel baseball team while out on patrol in Fort Myers recently, and showed some pretty strong batting ability.

Video shared on Facebook shows Deputy Jonathon Roedding stepping up to the plate in the parking lot of a hotel off Alico Road.

Roedding makes a clean hit, sending the team running after the ball and warranting cheers from his fellow officers. Roedding celebrates as he rounds the “bases” on the makeshift diamond. Credit: Lee County Sheriff’s Office via Storyful
