Antetokounmpo had never before touched a baseball, but that changed Monday at Yankee Stadium.

He was impressed with the power the players had at the plate.

"I saw Aaron Judge hitting the ball into the stands," Antetokounmpo said. "That's amazing. You've got to be really strong to do that."

Brewers' Yasmani Grandal apologizes for outburst, rare ejection.
"That's not the way I want to be acting — especially for the kids that are in the stands," Grandal said after his third-career ejection.
