After getting a special fleece from NJ Governor Chris Christie, Prince Harry of Wales made his way to New York City yesterday. First stop: Harlem RBI in East Harlem, a group which turned an empty lot into baseball diamonds for children to have a place to learn and play. Prince Harry showed the crowd he can play games that us Yanks play, especially when the baseball is thrown by Mark Teixeira of the Yankees.

The third in line to the British crown (he'll be fourth after his niece or nephew is born) charmed the children—one told the Daily News that he wasn't mean "he's quite nice" and looks "sweet" (see the video below)—and another told the Telegraph she was impressed his batting, "All of us were like ‘is that a bird or is that a ball?’. I didn’t think anyone could swing that fast - he hit that thing out, all of us were like ‘wow’. Who thinks that a Prince is going to play baseball? Princes are usually in castles or doing something important."

Teixeira said, "Everybody here enjoys having Yankees around but when Prince Harry shows up it takes it up to a whole different level," adding that Harry is "a very good athlete, you can tell that right away. I was just telling him ‘keep round the ball’, he knew what he was doing, he played some cricket growing up and he’s seen American baseball - he’s a natural." Harlem RBI is working with the Prince’s Royal Foundation.

Prince Harry also attended a British tourism event in the Meatpacking District with Prime Minister David Cameron—they got 3D dolls of themselves.
