When Ken Griffey Jr. stepped into the batter's box, even opposing pitchers were left in awe by his sweet swing.
Apparently, the Hall of Famer, now in his 50s, still has not lost his touch.
It took some convincing, but Griffey, who is currently the hitting coach for Team USA, eventually decided to take some batting practice ahead of the World Baseball Classic quarter-final game against Venezuela.
Shortly after Griffey picked up a baseball bat, every player on Team USA stood around the plate to catch a glimpse of the iconic swing.
He was named to 13 All-Star teams over the course of his storied career.
METS STAR EDWIN DIAZ SUFFERED FREAK INJURY IN WORLD BASEBALL CLASSIC BUT TOURNEY IS FAR FROM 'MEANINGLESS'The last time Griffey was on an All-Star team was in 2007, when several Team USA players were 12-years-old or younger.
Pete Alonso was 12, Kyle Tucker was 10, and Bobby Witt Jr. was seven years old.
Several players had smiles on their faces as they watched in admiration at loanDepot park, the site of this year's World Baseball Classic Championship.
"Guys were putting a lot of pressure on him," Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout told reporters.
He said, ‘Give me 10 swings, and I know I can hit one out.'"
Griffey was showered with praise when he ended that batting session with a home run.
