Jake Paul isn’t happy about that video of him whiffing a bunch of pitches ahead of the recent Miami Marlins and San Diego Padres game.
The YouTuber continuously missed the ball while in the batter’s box after being invited to be the guest of honour at LoanDepot Park on Tuesday.

However, Paul has since insisted the clip of him appearing to not be able to hit the ball has been “edited.”
He told fans in a social media clip, “I hit a home run, but the cameras weren’t rolling for that part. I hit it a couple of times, I’m better than that.”
Dear sports fans. Don’t believe the edited video… pic.twitter.com/TVU0JBhHtz

The team ended up giving Paul a toy bat to show off what his home run celebration would look like, with the boxer joking:
this is my home run celebration (if I could hit lol) https://t.co/vQJ5DgkTow
