Gronkowski family ‘Dizzy Bat Race’ showdown uncovered

Before he was a record-setting NFL tight end, before he taught us a bad day at the office should never stop you from dancing your heart out, Rob Gronkowski was dropping hints of greatness to come.

Case in point: Shutdown Corner (via Barstool Sports) dug up this YouTube clip of Rob and brother Chris taking part in a “Dizzy Bat Race” during an independent league baseball game.

The clip — uploaded by the Worcester Tornadoes — was taken in 2009. Rob’s brother, Gordie Gronkowski (awesome) was with the team at the time.

You’ll have to watch the video to find out who wins. To spare you the disappointment, we’ll just tell you now that no shirts are removed at any point. Alas.
