The Pittsburgh Steelers are preparing for training camp at Saint Vincent College on July 26th, but there are still some summer days left to be had before the team gets back to work. One of those nights was Saturday when Cam Heyward hosted his charity softball event to benefit his Heyward House charity.
Take a look at Heyward introducing Steelers fans to the event, only to have Najee Harris call it a volleyball game.

The format for the game was Team ‘Burgh vs. Team World. Players for Team World were obviously anyone who was invited who wasn’t a member of the Steelers, or Pittsburgh. One of those was Barstool Sports own Jersey Jerry, a huge Steelers fan. Jerry showed off his power as one of the bright spots for the visiting team.

As for Team ‘Burgh, no one stole the spotlight like Kenny Pickett. Pickett hit two home runs, and was a crowd favorite.
