If Adrian Peterson's football career doesn't work out, he definitely doesn't have a future in softball.
As part of MLB's All-Star weekend, Peterson played in the Legends and Celebrity Softball Game on Sunday and it was all fun and games until it was time for Peterson to go up against Jennie Finch.
As a pitcher for the United States in the 2004 Olympics, Finch helped the U.S. bring home a gold medal. If you've forgotten who Jennie Finch is, this is Jennie Finch.

Either the Vikings running back didn't know how good Finch was or he didn't care, because he asked her to bring the heat during his at-bat.
"I said, 'Don't take it easy on me. I want you to come with a fastball,'" Peterson told ESPN.com.
Finch brought the heat and you can see below what happened. Lets just say it wasn't pretty. Finch eventually showed Peterson some mercy and threw him a slow pitch -- and Peterson still didn't get on base, he grounded out.
