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.

Here are some tweets from the game, and how it all played out at the Washington Wild Things field in Washington, PA.

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.

Some of the Steelers who participated in the game were:

RB Najee Harris
TE Connor Heyward
DT Cam Heyward
DE Chris Wormley
OLB Alex Highsmith
QB Mitch Trubisky
QB Kenny Pickett
SS Terrell Edmunds
WR Calvin Austin III

When the dust settled, it was Team ‘Burgh claiming victory by the final score 18-6.

The even was deemed a huge success, for both the fans and the players, and also provided financial assistance to Heyward’s charity. A win-win all around.
