Major League Baseball is having its "Players Weekend" but at Wrigley Field it may as well have been hockey players weekend.

Chicago Blackhawks forwards Alex DeBrincat and Dylan Strome showed up to support the Chicago Cubs during a Saturday game against the Washington Nationals.

The pair each threw out a ceremonial pitch before the game.

Later, they joined the announcers in the booth to talk about the upcoming Blackhawks season and they didn't get away without leading the crowd in a rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," as is tradition at Wrigley.
