The Philadelphia Phillies have always shown support for the rest of the teams in Philly.
This past year the city had two teams make the championship in their respective sports.
So the Phillies decided to welcome two Eagles stars to Citizens Bank Park for batting practice.
According to NBC Sports Philadelphia, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts and wide receiver A.J. Brown showed off their swings.

We have seen plenty of instances in the past where other sports stars come to take batting practice.
For Brown, taking batting practice was something that came naturally to him.
That is because he was a 19th-round draft pick by the San Diego Padres back in 2016.
He strongly considered playing professional baseball before committing to play football at Ole Miss.
It is safe to say he made the right choice.
Even though football is a collision sport, Brown has already made millions of dollars playing it.
Hurts does not have the same type of baseball background.
But, it appears he has a decent-looking swing.
It is common for pro athletes to be good at other sports, and that seems to be the case with these two.
As for the Phillies, it appears that the start of June has been great for them.
They are 4-2 in June and have won four straight games.
After a poor start to the season, the Phillies are hoping to turn their season around and get back in NL East contention.
They trail the Atlanta Braves by 7.5 games for first place in the division.
But, they have plenty of time to make those games up and try to return to the playoffs.NEXT: Kyle Schwarber Is Keeping His June Magic Alive
