Could you play softball better than Drake? Maybe! You definitely wouldn’t be able to cha-cha as well walking up to the plate or get the same standing ovation. Or OVO-ation? Okay, we digress.
Check out the new video below (shot by Sama’an Ashrawi), featuring Drake and Hannibal Buress playing softball for Team OVO against Team Houston during OVO Houston Appreciation Weekend last May:
Team OVO (which also featured NFL players Dwayne Bowe and LeRon McClain and former MLB pitcher Brandon Backe) fell to Houston 8-2. Two of OVO’s 27 outs were groundouts from Drake and Buress, which we have the honor of being able to watch above in all their glory.

They looked good doing it, though. Both teams’ uniforms were spinoffs on the real-life Houston Astros’ fresh blue and orange design. Team OVO’s jersey even featured a little UGK logo on the sleeve. The OVO weekend featured Bun B and a Pimp C memorial. For more on how it went down, check out Billboard’s wrap-up.
