These A-List Celebrities Were Once Star Athletes

Billy Crystal — Baseball Player at Marshall University

Funny man Billy Crystal has always been a big fan of baseball. He’s participated in a number of celebrity baseball/softball games over the years. He even attempted to hit off of live pitching when playing around during spring training with his childhood favorite New York Yankees. It’s not a surprise to learn that baseball was deeply-rooted in Crystal’s family. His father pitched in college, and Crystal earned a baseball scholarship to Marshall University. However, he left the program and returned to New York after about a year. The rest, as they say, was history.
