As part of his trip to the United States, Prince Harry stopped by the Harlem RBI field in New York to help support a good cause. Harlem RBI is an organization that helps inner-city kids stay healthy, stay active, do well in school, all sorts of stuff.

The video below is from Prince Harry's visit, but the highlight is not him taking his hacks and getting some coaching on the field. It's the BBC newscaster trying to explain baseball to the British audience:

"Someone lobs a baseball ... normally a bit quicker than this." It's perfect.

Oh, by the way. The pitcher -- "the man in red," according to the broadcaster -- is Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, who does a lot of work with Harlem RBI. Great job by both Prince Harry and Teixeira to support the cause, with the fringe benefit being an entertaining video.
