Surfing can be a tricky task on its own. Same with hitting a baseball. Combine the two? You must be crazy.
Eddie Vedder did exactly that in a new video he posted on Facebook and it might just be the most impressive thing you watch today.
Vedder was out in Seattle when he took part in the stunt, which was all for a good cause. Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein asked Eddie to take part in the #TrickShot4Snowy campaign. The challenge was created in support of Calgary Flames Assistant General Manager Chris Snow, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2019.
June is ALS Awareness Month in Canada and #TrickShot4Snowy has been used by various athletes and celebrities on social media to raise awareness and funding for the cause. After they complete the trick shot, an individual will call on someone else to take part in it and donate.
Before his successful trick shot, Vedder called out his Pearl Jam bandmate Jeff Ament as well as former NHL star Chris Chelios.

Pearl Jam recently gave the live debut of their new song “Dance of the Clairvoyants” during the All In WA virtual COVID-19 relief concert.
Although it wasn’t the debut they may have anticipated, the socially-distant version of the song featured each member of the band performing in their own home. During the performance, Vedder held up a handheld camera throughout the entire performance recreating the live setting by using a smoke machine and stage lighting.
