There are so many way in which someone can botch a first pitch, so if you're ever faced with the challenge, it's best to stick with what you know. Perhaps that's why the captain of the Chicago Steel (USHL) decided to throw out the first pitch using his hockey stick.
Having helped the Chicago Steel win the Clark Cup Championship, a junior hockey tournament, team captain Marc Johnstone had the honour of tossing out the first pitch on Thursday at the White Sox game. He could have thrown the pitch, but Johnstone chose to use his trusty hockey stick instead like a champ, delivering a strike.
Sidney Crosby's first pitch from earlier in the season was nice, but considering Johnstone stick with his hockey roots and brought a stick onto the field, we would have to say that he's our new favourite pick for top hockey-baseball player. It's a very prestigious title.
