Najee Harris is having fun in the city of Pittsburgh.

When he is not at organized team activities for the Steelers, the first-round running back is at the local sporting events.

After showing love to the Penguins on the ice, the former Alabama standout was at PNC Park today for the Pirates.

He tossed the ceremonial first pitch as the Pirates were in a series against the Miami Marlins. Harris could have played baseball as his pitch made it across the plate. Fans of the team were excited to see the Steelers’ rookie take in a game on the diamond.

He has performed well during OTAs and earned praise from Ben Roethlisberger. Harris is forever grateful to be a national champion, Heisman finalist, Doak Walker Award winner, and Unanimous First-Team All-American; however, he is more excited about his work in the pros.

He signed a four-year contract worth $13 million and is ready to help the Steelers win a Super Bowl.
