Rickie Fowler takes batting practice at St. Louis Cardinals facility

We knew Rickie Fowler was a huge motocross fan. But the 25-year-old might have a bit of baseball fever, too.

Fowler posted a photo on Instagram of him taking batting practice at a St. Louis Cardinals/New York Mets spring training game in Jupiter, Fla. this afternoon.

Check out that swing! Those are strong upper-body swing positions for golf -- the straight left arm into impact with the lower right shoulder. Not so much for baseball. (To be fair, looks like that pitch is coming in a little low and outside.)

Fowler credits Butch Harmon for some recent strides in his golf swing. He has him cleaning up his backswing and spine angle, which Fowler parlayed into a semifinal appearance at the WGC-Match Play last month.

But as for baseball? Looks like it's clearly just a hobby for the Jupiter-based Fowler.
