8-Year-Old Baller Lands Special Trick Shot to Celebrate July Fourth

An eight-year-old in Georgia combined two of America’s best-loved sports, basketball and baseball, for a special trick shot he landed over the Fourth of July weekend.

Footage tweeted by Jacklyn Vozniak on July 3 shows her son Zeke, an aspiring pro-baller, hitting a red, white and blue basketball with a baseball bat.

The ball sails through the net, prompting excited celebrations from Zeke, which included lighting a blue smoke bomb.

“This trick shot took him longer than expected. He never gave up and he is very thankful to be an American,” Vozniak told Storyful.
