Neymar is the worst baseball player in world

The Barcelona star meets the Mets!

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Neymar is an extremely talented footballer. Many believe he'll supplant Lionel Messi as the best in the world very soon and he very well might.

However, we learned on Tuesday night that the Brazil and Barcelona superstar will not pull a Michael Jordan and leave his job to become a baseball player. Not if his visit to the New York Mets is any indication. He showed up at Citi Field to meet the Mets (step right up and greet the Mets! Sorry.) and to try his hand at some batting practice. And...well...let's just say it did not go very well.

After just a few pathetic swings he gave up and reverted back to his natural skills of juggling. Instead of a football he grabbed a baseball and did his thing:

Neymar may be one of the best footballers in the world, but not all athletes are multi-faceted in the sporting arena. Baseball definitely isn't in his future any time soon.
