Pittsburgh Penguins’ forward Craig Adams will be continuing the “first puck” tradition at Altoona Curve baseball games on Monday.
According to Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Adams will do the honors this year, and shoot the “first puck” (first pitch) at the Altoona Curve’s (Pirates’ Double-A affiliate) game Monday against the Richmond Flying Squirrels.

Last year, when Dupuis did it, he shot a puck off a board from the pitchers mound and at a goaltender – who was a young girl.
Adams is also going to be the first right-handed shot at the event, as all the other three are left-handed.
Adams, 37, is entering what looks to be his final season with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Set to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2014-15 campaign, there’s a chance he may never get this opportunity again.
So, think of this as Adams getting in on the action before it’s too late.
