That’s right! You didn’t read the title wrong… The famous NBA basketball star, Shaquille O’ Neal, has challenged our very own baseball all-star Albert Pujols to a Home Run Derby! As strange as something like that sounds, it is equally or more awesome that it is actually going to happen! The reason for the event is due to a new TV show on ABC, “Shaq Vs.” In the show, Shaquille O’ Neal will challenge professional athletes to different sporting events in their expertise and try to beat them. Pretty cool, huh?
