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.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?

    Dunkin' Donuts cashiers will try to 'upsell' you in the afternoon

    If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.

    When he's not slaying three-headed beasts with his olive-wood club, Hercules carves out time for the little people. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson treated fans from the Harlem Boys and Girls Club and Big Brothers Big Sisters NYC to an advance screening of his new film. I caught up with the larger-than-life action hero after the big surprise.
