With a game against the Cleveland Indians on tap Saturday, Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto got the crowd ready for the "Battle of Ohio: Arizona" in a fitting way.

The LeBron James chalk toss.

The 2010 National League Most Valuable Player doesn't tend to show much personality on the field, but given that it's spring training, he decided to give the fans a show. And it was something Cleveland fans could appreciate.

Votto went 1-for-3 in a 7-4 victory over the Indians.
