Sidney Crosby Hits A Homer At PNC Park (Video)

It is no secret that Sidney Crosby is the best hockey player in Pittsburgh, but he may also be the best baseball player in the city as well.  Especially when you consider the fact that his toughest competition comes from the players on the Pittsburgh Pirates.

When was the last time you saw a player on the Pirates do this on a consistent basis?

Do they get any more modest than Sid the Kid?  “I have a little bit of an edge because I’m a lefty, so it’s a little shorter.”

Seriously Sidney?  You are a hockey player who just hit a 370-foot home run in a big league ball park.  As I made note of before, half the guys on the Pittsburgh Pirates probably can’t even do that.

Next time, perhaps you should scrap the humble approach and just say, “Yeah, I hit a home run.  I can score goals whenever I want as well.  And in case you haven’t noticed, I also won my country a gold medal, and this city a Stanley Cup.”  All we are asking for is a little less modesty and a little more honesty Sid.
