Detroit Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson has made a name for himself playing baseball, but it looks like he could have been a strong basketball player as well.

Teammate Torii Hunter posted a video on Instagram of Jackson effortlessly dunking, which showed just how high Jackson can jump.

Jackson originally committed to play both baseball and basketball—as a point guard—at Georgia Tech, but the New York Yankees persuaded him to play baseball after taking him in the eighth round of the 2005 MLB draft.
