      ABC 33/40's Chief Meteorologist James Spann took a timeout from Twitter Wednesday to take a few swings of the bat with the Birmingham Barons.

      Wearing his normal attire of slacks and suspenders, Spann donned a baseball helmet and swung away at some pitches. The weather guru actually looked quite comfortable at the plate, making solid connection on a couple of hits. But if you ask us, he shouldn't quit his day job.
