Footage Resurfaces of 14-Year-Old Patrick Mahomes Chasing MLB Dreams with the Kansas City Royals

Patrick Mahomes having options to go pro in football or baseball was already well known, but his efforts in the 2010 Junior League Baseball World Series have re-emerged online.

At 14, Mahomes played shortstop for the Tyler, Texas-based team taking on Taipei in the final. He’s listed at 6-foot-1, 165 pounds, with his favorite movie being ‘Remember the Titans’.

In his third at-bat of the night, Mahomes takes the third pitch of the at-bat, a curveball that hung in the air for too long, and smacked it through the middle of the infield for a base hit.

It was the game’s first run for the American champions, but did not start a rally, as it was Texas’ only run scored of the game, eventually losing 9-1 to Taipei.

It was a blast from the past, as Mamhomes’ flirtation with the Kansas City Royals has been ongoing since being drafted by the neighboring Chiefs in 2017.

Mahomes has thrown out the first pitch at Royals games before and is a beloved figure in Kansas City.

Even if Mahomes tried his best for the Royals and failed, nothing would stop his level of popularity after bringing three Super Bowls to the city over the last five years.

Mahomes played college baseball at Texas Tech for two years and was selected by the Detroit Tigers in the 2014 MLB Draft in the 37th round, but did not sign a contract with the team.

Pat Mahomes Sr. was a professional baseball player, with his natural diamond ability translating to his son.

The 28-year-old Mahomes’ godfather is one of his dad’s old teammates, LaTroy Hawkins.

Mahomes is well on his way to being one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time and is unlikely to pull a Deion Sanders or Bo Jackson and play in both the MLB and NFL.

His love for baseball to this day is evident, starting from a young age
