McDavid Throws Out First Pitch at SeaWolves Game

I am very glad that the Erie SeaWolves and Erie Otters are finally finding a way to cross promote themselves in the city when they are virtually neighbors. It's on the eve of the time when Erie will no longer have Connor McDavid, the presumed number one overall selection in this upcoming NHL draft. He'll be NHL ready and leave the Otters in a good place. I've seen and read about how he's given the Erie fans and community something to talk about and give them national attention. He's raised attendance while they're on their way through the OHL playoffs. It's only nice of him to build up the community once again by throwing out the Erie SeaWolves first pitch.

Seen here with the new owner of the SeaWolves, he's certainly willing to give his time during a playoff run to give a boost. I, for one, hope that he never forgets the community who gave him a home and several great years of hockey experience before making the jump to the pros.

Thank you, Connor for your contribution to Erie sports history and best of luck to you for the remainder of the OHL season.
