Pittsburgh, PA - If the Pittsburgh Pirates need an answer to their power-hitting problems, maybe they can find it across town in Penguins star Sidney Crosby.

The former NHL MVP homered into PNC Park's right-field seats while taking batting practice Wednesday with eight Penguins teammates. Crosby, who played youth baseball in Canada until he was 13, was the only one of the group to reach the seats.
The session was arranged by former first baseman Sean Casey, who recently toured Haiti with Penguins forwards Max Talbot and Mike Rupp.
Crosby missed by several feet of homering during his first round of batting practice before going deep on the 15th swing of his second round.
