Dirk Nowitzki ready for more baseball

By Patrick Dorsey



The basketball season might be over, but Dallas Mavericks superstar Dirk Nowitzki isn't done with sports until fall. For one day in late June, for charity, Nowitzki is partnering with the Heroes Foundation for the 2012 Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game.

Of course, it won't be the first time he picks up a bat and/or ball. Check out that above clip to see the 7-footer take a hack. And don't forget...
