It's always fun to imagine the best athletes in the world playing a sport other than their own. Bo Jackson is arguably the greatest athlete to have ever accomplished this feat in two professional leagues.
Even Michael Jordan (pictured) tried his luck with baseball for a couple seasons in the prime of his basketball career.
With the Home Run Derby taking place tonight, there are several star athletes today who could probably compete with baseball's best.
Here are the top 10 non-baseball athletes who could compete with the likes of Miguel Cabrera and Corey Hart in the Home Run Derby.
Lesnar is the hardest hitter on the planet today. The world knows he can destroy anything that steps in front of him.
Lesnar was introduced to the wrestling world in the early 2000's in the WWE. Lesnar quickly became one of the brand's biggest superstars while becoming the youngest wrestler to ever win the World Heavyweight Championship.
In between his stint with WWE and UFC, Lesnar tried out for the Minnesota Vikings. He was a very late cut in training camp, which is not bad for someone who didn't play football in college.
Lesnar definitely has enough power to hit home runs, and his continued improvement in coordination inside the octagon would certainly help him on the ball field.
In terms of hand-eye coordination, he has no problem hitting an opponent when he sees one. If he could do that with a baseball and bat, it could get dangerous.
Although Sting has aged some, he has always been notorious for swinging around a baseball bat to intimidate opponents.
Sting is arguably the greatest professional wrestler to have never signed with WWE. Sting was the backbone of the WCW brand until it was bought out by WWE, and he is currently one of the main stars today for TNA wrestling.
Sting allegedly stands 6'2" and weighs 250 pounds, so he definitely has the build to hit a few long balls.
The biggest home run hitter in the NFL today may be able to knock a few over the fence as well.
If he couldn't get them over the fence, Johnson could definitely lead the league in inside-the-park home runs.
Johnson was an outstanding track athlete in addition to football, so baseball was out of the question as a spring sport.
At 5'11" and 200 pounds Johnson's compact but solid frame could easily generate home run power.
Prior to signing with the Miami Heat, there were many stories written about independent minor league teams who wanted to sign James. The parallels with Michael Jordan's career were obvious, but those have all been thrown out the window since then.
James was an all-state athlete in basketball and football. How his athletic ability would translate into hitting home runs is unpredictable.
LeBron is notorious for sporting his Yankees hats, and that was probably the first sign that he had no loyalty to Cleveland in the first place, but that doesn't matter for this column.
LeBron definitely has the strength and coordination necessary to hit the long ball, but it would just be a question of whether he wants to do it or not. Then again, if he couldn't do it, he could probably call up Dwayne Wade and ask for help in getting the ball over the fence.
Carl Edwards is famous for two things. Winning on the track and doing back flips.
Edwards participated in the 2009 celebrity softball all-star game on ESPN during last year's all-star festivities. Edwards is also a big fan of WWE, and he guest hosted an episode of Raw earlier this year.
It's hard to say whether Edwards could compete in a home run contest with the big boys, but he has great concentration and enough athletic ability to compete with anyone else who would attempt this feat.
Some people say that playing golf ruins your baseball swing and by playing baseball, you ruin your golf swing.
What better person to test this theory with than Tiger Woods. Although Woods has been down this season, he is still the most feared golfer on the planet.
Woods is arguably the most physically fit athlete on the PGA tour. Given the torque and swing speed he can create with a golf club, it would be very interesting to see what he could do with a baseball bat.
After all, a 400 foot home run is only a sand wedge away for Tiger Woods.
In addition to playing quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, Tony Romo is also a scratch golfer. Through high school, Romo played tennis and basketball in addition to football and golf, so it's clear that he has ample athletic ability to play baseball.
If Romo has enough arm strength to be one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL to go along with the coordination needed to be a successful golfer, he could certainly hit home runs in a major league ballpark.
Shane Watson was recognized this past February as Australia's best cricketer for the previous year of international test matches. Australia has one of the best cricket teams in the world, so that award definitely carries some heavy weight in the international community.
Watson was the opening batsman for Australia last year. To put that last sentence in baseball terms, Watson was Australia's lead-off hitter in 2009-10, and he would often spend multiple hours on the pitch before getting out.
Speaking from experience, baseball skills do translate very easily over to cricket, and a professional athlete like Watson could definitely make the change over to baseball if he wished.
Chara has won the last three hardest shot competitions during the NHL SuperSkills Competition.
He holds the record in that contest with his hardest shot registering at 105.4 mph.
A baseball swing is fairly comparable to shooting a hockey puck. Both movements involve great leg drive, shoulder turn and outstanding hand-eye coordination.
If Chara could connect with a pitch the same way he does a hockey puck, those baseballs could get to the outfield seats in a hurry.
Although it's much harder to hit a baseball with a bat than a racket, Andy Roddick has plenty of experience in hitting a fast moving target.
Roddick has one of the most powerful serves in tennis today, and his first serves usually travel between 130 and 150 mph.
As you can see in the picture, Roddick's backhand swing is fairly similar to that of a lefty baseball swing.
Given his experience in having to play using both hands adequately, Roddick could probably be a switch hitter in the majors if he wanted to give baseball a shot.
