Liverpool's Steven Gerrard looks to be getting in the swing of things on the club's tour of the USA.

The club's skipper, who recently announced he was retiring from international football, picked up the baseball habit on a visit to Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox, and posted a clip via instagram with the message:

Baseball practice at Fenway park. Home run 👌⚾️ #bostonredsoxs #boom

Unfortunately the diversion didn't help the Reds as they lost 1-0 to Roma in their first match later that day.
