For years, whenever Andrew McCutchen wanted a little work at the plate, all he had to do was zip over to PNC Park.

After being traded last week, however, the former Pirates centerfielder and National League MVP needed to find new accommodations.

Enter North Allegheny High School pitching coach Sean Holliday.


When McCutchen put out a plea on Twitter on Friday for someone to throw him some batting practice in the Wexford area, Holliday immediately responded, “I’m at North Allegheny HS right now. Come on up. I throw bp for a living.”

Fast forward to Friday night, when Cutch tweeted a photo of himself with Holliday and members of the North Allegheny baseball team.

“A big thanks to @CoachSeanTCT @NA_baseball2017 for helping a brotha out by throwing me some bp! Nice chatting it up w/ the Seniors as well,” he wrote.
