NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

It is not every day that a prince shows up to play a little baseball in Harlem, but that's exactly what happened Tuesday afternoon as Britain's Prince Harry continued his visit in the United States by playing baseball with kids there.

Jolita Brettler, 9, was definitely thrilled to be one of the lucky kids who played baseball this afternoon with His Royal Highness in Harlem.

Harry spent part of the afternoon at Harlem RBI's Field of Dreams. He came here to help launch a new partnership between Harlem RBI and the Royal Foundation. It will support the local non-profits youth coaching program called Project Coach.

The prince did not speak publicly. He got some baseball tips from Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira and 9-year-old Jeremiah Garcia.

The Prince then hit two balls straight to the outfield. The kids told me he seemed really fun and kind. He absolutely picked up some new royal fans.

Harry then headed to a Royal Foundation Fundraiser. He ends his weeklong U.S. trip with a polo match in Greenwich, Conn., on Wednesday.
