Sidney Crosby Can Mash Too?
I was incredibly impressed by Tim Tebow who hit 12 out of 15 pitches he saw for home runs during a random batting practice session in May. I was equally surprised by the stellar display we heard Packers first-round pick Bryan Bulaga put on at Brewers BP a week later. The most impressive of the bunch though may have been Penguins captain Sidney Crosby.
Crosby and some other Penguins visited PNC Park in Pittsburgh for a batting practice session and Sid the Kid showed he may have a career in baseball if something ever goes wrong in the NHL. Batting lefty, Crosby crushed a ball that appeared to leave the entire park. It was incredible. Here’s the Sidney Crosby batting practice video:
He says he played until he was 13 but it looks like he has much more experience than that. Minus the little hitch where he drops his hands down in his swing, I think he could be a productive ballplayer if he dedicated himself to it.
