SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - Michael Phelps still hops in the pool these days, but only to escape questions about whether he'll swim competitively again.

The most decorated Olympian is too busy enjoying retirement to think about a Michael Jordan-like comeback. Phelps is filming a reality TV series for the Golf Channel with swing coach Hank Haney. The two visited the Baltimore Orioles in spring training on Thursday.

Phelps donned a helmet for batting practice. After getting warm he found the outfield with more than a few swings, impressing manager Buck Showalter.

Phelps wore a No. 18 jersey, the same number of Olympic gold medals he won during his unparalleled swimming career.
