Eddie Olczyk was pitch perfect, on the mound and on the mic.
The longtime Chicago Blackhawks broadcaster and Stanley Cup champion with the 1994 New York Rangers was on hand Tuesday to throw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs.
Olczyk took the hill and fired a strike.
Before the pitch, he got some advice from Cubs pitcher Mike Montgomery.
Later, Olczyk was back in his natural habitat, the broadcast booth.
And, as is tradition, he had to perform "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the seventh-inning stretch.
Olczyk also took a minute to remind fans about the upcoming Blackhawks fan convention.
All around, the night was a home run. Or a hat trick. Either way.
