Josh Allen can do it all!

The Buffalo Bills quarterback, 26, was in Toronto on Monday to cheer on the Blue Jays in their series against the New York Yankees, where he participated in batting practice with the team, the Toronto Sun reported.

Allen, a former high school baseball player, hit several homers at Rogers Centre, blasting them out to the stands with some reaching the second deck.

"It was fun to get back out there," Allen said after finishing up, according to the Toronto Sun. "I was telling some off the coaches I miss shagging balls and spitting seeds and just talking with the guys. That's some of the best memories I had in high school."

The Blue Jays joked on Twitter that they had brought him up to the majors.

"ROSTER MOVE: QB Josh Allen has been recalled from Buffalo," they tweeted. "He homered FOUR times."

Allen was also crushing homers a week earlier at a charity softball game for his Buffalo Bills teammate, Micah Hyde.

The MLB shared a clip of Allen's home run on Twitter, writing, "Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen was launching balls to the MOON during a charity softball game."

Allen didn't share his pregame routine for the charity game, but the athlete told PEOPLE in December that his go-to method for getting pumped up before a football game is listening to his favorite music.

"It's actually old slow school, so I listen to Frank Sinatra, there's an Elvis track, there's a Sammy Davis Jr. track," Allen said. "And then the last two I listen to are a little bit of a pump up, but not much. That's like, 'Alright, get ready, you're going out there, get ready to go [kind of song].'"
