VIDEO: Monaco Star Radamel Falcao Tries His Hand At Baseball…And Nearly Kills A Guy

Radamel Falcao is one of the most lethal strikers in world football.

The Colombia international has even earned the nickname El Tigre (The Tiger), due to his famed predatory instincts.

So, with that in mind, the 28-year-old decided to try his luck at baseball this week…

And it looks like Falcao is just as deadly with the bat as he is with the ball at his feet.

The first two hits are nothing to write home about.

But the third could quite possibly have decapitated the poor pitcher, who has to duck for cover as Falcao bursts into laughter:

The former Atletico Madrid player will be hoping his fortunes are equally as bright on the football pitch this year, after a disappointing first season on the French Riviera.
