Jennifer Lopez stays active during self-isolation as she plays baseball

After retiring from the Yankees nearly four years ago, Alex Rodriguez has come out of retirement to play some backyard family baseball. 

The former professional shortstop was joined by his fiancé Jennifer Lopez and her daughter Emme, 12, for a game of catch after the Major League Baseball's delayed its season over coronavirus. 

'No Opening Day. No Sunday Night Baseball,' the athlete captioned a video of his family goofing off in the backyard on Saturday.

'We hit, we threw, we played catch, we caught ground balls and pop flies. We laughed. We exercised,' said the father-of-two, who shares Natasha, 15, and Ella, 11, with ex Cynthia Scurtis.  

'It's a reminder of how much fun you can have with people you love ... with just a bat, glove and few balls,' he said of his 'Saturday Game of the Week' at home.

Around 20 seconds into the video, the hitmaker's man can be heard complimenting her throw, before saying, 'Oh, sh*t,' and the ball lands into the bushes next to him.
