PITTSBURGH (CBS SPORTS) – Prior to Tuesday night’s NL Wild Card game between the Pirates and Reds, Andrew McCutchen’s mother Petrina sang the national anthem before a sold out PNC Park.
The crowd joined in before Mother McCutchen hugged her son and sent him off to play.
It was a rather awesome moment prior to the first playoff game in the ballpark’s history (and the first in Pittsburgh since 1992).
