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.

    To say the 6 feet 5 inch Baloji has a presence would be an understatement. The Belgian artist commands the stage with his mix of hip hop, funk, and rap. The 34-year-old rocked out Webster Hall back in January. Now he's back in New York City kicking off a month-long tour. "It's one of the most inspiring cities on Earth so it's always great to be here," Baloji says.

    New York has never known a Central Park without that rhythmic click-clacking. But if Mayor Bill de Blasio gets his way, he'll put those hooves out to pasture, replacing them with a different noise-maker. Actually, excluding its horn the electric carriage makes little noise at all. It runs on lithium-ion batteries, has a variable-speed a/c motor, and is relatively silent, says Jason Wenig.
