It's good to be king. The Penguins took the Stanley Cup to PNC Park last night to visit the Pirates. Crosby threw a pretty decent first pitch with A LOT of pressure on him. And there was even talk of a fight?

First pitches are serious business with the Pens.
Sources in the clubhouse tell me Crosby is throwing from the rubber, and a lot (all) of his teammates don't think he can throw a strike— Nick Bonino (@NickBonino) June 13, 2017
Ump called a strike. Catcher told me it was a ball. Jury's out. Whatever the call, heck of a pitch from 87.— Nick Bonino (@NickBonino) June 13, 2017
