Baker Mayfield has a heck of an arm and some athleticism to boot, so the Oklahoma QB excelling at other sports wouldn’t come as a shock.
So could the signal caller, say, join the Sooners’ baseball team? Unlikely. But would it be impossible? Not necessarily.

Oklahoma football and basketball have dominated in 2015-16, so Sooners fans are hoping the baseball team can follow suit.
