For some fans of Travis Kelce who have been closely following his trajectory over the last couple of years, it seems that the NFL star “just can’t lose.”

That sentiment seemed to be bolstered on Sat., June 8 when the Kansas City Chiefs tight end secured a win at a celebrity event focusing on an entirely different sport.

Earlier this week, Kelce confirmed that he would participate in an inaugural celebrity softball game hosted by Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku. The game, which was held on Saturday at the Classic Auto Group Park in Eastlake, Ohio, was preceded by a Home Run Derby, during which Kelce and other participants competed to see who could hit the greatest number of home runs.

Kelce ultimately won the competition after hitting 11 home runs, according to Sports Illustrated. He celebrated the moment with an excited victory lap on the field.

A fan account dedicated to providing updates on Kelce’s relationship with his pop star girlfriend, Taylor Swift, gathered video clips of his time at bat and shared the compilation on X, formerly Twitter. Excited fans posted celebratory comments on the video, with one calling Kelce a “killabaseball player,” a reference to the NFL player’s “Killa Trav” nickname.

“He just can’t lose at anything,” one fan wrote, to which another fan jokingly responded, “Sometimes, he loses golf.”

Another fan tweeted that Kelce seems to be “a winner in everything.”

“Literally, knocking it out of the park!! x11,” one X user wrote.

“Of course Killa won the homerun derby,” another X user said.

“Way to do it Big Yeti!!!” one person tweeted in reference to another of Kelce’s nicknames.

New Heights, the sports podcast that Kelce hosts with his brother Jason, also celebrated the day by sharing a video clip of Kelce’s victory lap on X.

“Killa Trav called GAME,” the podcast’s tweet said.
