CBS Sports reported that he killed it, but it seems that the only info they had at the time of reporting was the tweet.
My best guess of the situation was he saw a coyote and he deemed it a threat to either his kids or pets or maybe both. He grabbed a baseball, probably had quite a few lying around, and delivered a strike. I do not think he killed it, but I am sure the coyote learned his lesson.
