The Houston Astros may lose 100 games this season but perhaps they found a player that can hit. J.J. Watt, the reigning NFL defensive player of the year, put on a power display before the teams game on Friday.

Watt hit five home runs according to James Palmer of Comcast Sportsnet Houston. At one point he hit three in a row.

Hitting home runs is not unheard of for Watt as he played baseball until his sophomore year of high school.biggio

This is not the first time Watt has donned Astro gear. He showed his support for Craig Biggio’s hall of fame bid this year by sporting a retro jersey. (right)
