Matt, Brad & Nick take batting practice with the Sioux City Explorers

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

If you watched the end of our 6 o'clock newscast, Monday night, then you heard weekend sports anchor Nick Filipowski issue a challenge to Sports Director Brad Pautsch and News Anchor Matt Breen.

The challenge? To get a hit off a Sioux City Explorers pitcher.

Don't get the wrong idea, the Nick, Brad and Matt know the X's are pros. They just wanted to see if three fans could step in and prepare to face a professional level fast ball.

Tuesday afternoon, they took a few cuts, and got some pointers from the Explorers staff including hitting coach Brent Metheny. Watch the highlights, Tuesday night on "News Four at 10".
