The All-Pro Detroit Lions receiver didn't disappoint in his amateur debut at Comerica Park on Friday, finding his groove in the batter's box early and routinely cracking pitch after pitch around the field.
Showing off a compact swing, Johnson made waves when he connected on a lob and sent it shooting over the left-field.
"I told (Detroit Tigers left fielder) Delmon Young I would keep coming back until I hit one out, and I happened to hit one out today," Johnson would later tell The Detroit News. "I'm still coming back, though."
