Phoenix Suns Devin Booker wins home run contests too

At Larry Fitzgerald's annual Celebrity Softball Game, Suns rookie Devin Booker showed off his skills once again.

Phoenix Suns young guard, Devin Booker, just finished his rookie campaign as the fourth youngest ever to score 1,000 points in the NBA. Only Kevin Durant, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant got to 1,000 at a younger age. He came into the league with a reputation as only a long-range shooter, but quickly showed the league his drive, handle and playmaking ability too.

Now, he can apparently pick up a bat for the first time in the last couple years and win a home run derby.

Larry Fitzgerald hosted his annual Celebrity Softball game last night, and Suns rookie Devin Booker - almost certainly the youngest guy on the field - showed out once again.

Watch this game action...

I gotta tell you. Dude looks like a kid out there.

Here he is next to Penny Taylor, of the Mercury.

And this is pretty cool too...

Booker was only the fourth Kentucky player drafted in the lottery last June, behind Karl-Anthony Towns, Willie Cauley-Stein and Trey Lyles. Maybe they all got walls devoted to them too. Love it!
