“She puts in more effort than the angels have all season” “Is Jojo your goat, she could be mine”
The MLB All-Star Game is almost here, with previous events already taking place. The All-Star Celebrity Softball Game took place last night, and we got to see some very famous people trying to play the game.
The Celebrity All-Star Softball game is always hilarious to watch. It’s not that bad and it’s great to see everyone trying to play baseball. It really puts into perspective how hard the game is and how easy the pros make it. However, there are people who excel at softball.
Such was the case for celebrity pop star Jojo Siwa. She did well during the game. She even hit a home run from famous rapper Quavo. He is particularly known for his basketball skills, but not so much for baseball.
Jojo Siwa rose to fame on the famous show “Dance Moms” where she appeared as a dancer for one season. She then joined Nickelodeon and became a mega famous children’s pop star.
Siwa snatched the ball to left field. He got past the outfielders enough that she ran all the way around the bases for an inside-the-park home run.
As soon as she touched that, the MLB comparisons hit.
It’s refreshing to see non-MLB players trying out the sport. It gives a sense of reality and really shows how elite Major League Baseball players are in their profession.
