Gronk Throws Out First Pitch at Fenway as Red Sox Get Their World Series Rings
Posted by: Gronkowski
Gronk may have caught his last touchdown for the Patriots, but his legacy in Boston sports history is just beginning.
The first step in the New Era of Gronk came on Tuesday when Rob channeled his inner Chris Sale to throw out the first pitch at the Red Sox home opener as the team received their World Series rings.

While it didn’t quite hit the mark, it certainly looked like Gordie Gronkowski Jr. has been sharing pro baseball tips with his little bro.

Gronk was joined by former teammates Super Bowl LIII MVP Julian Edelman and Stephon Gilmore on the mound as the Pats brought their Lombardi Trophies to Fenway Park to show the fans.
It was far from the first time that Gronk had taken over the historic ball park.
Back in 2016, Big Rob threw out the ceremonial first pitch to his Dunkin' Donuts commericals co-star, Big Papi, before the Sox faced the San Francisco Giants.
And who could forget when Gronk stole Tom Brady’s Super Bowl LI jersey on Opening Day 2017 and sprinted off with it across the field in a hilarious re-enactment of the real international theft of the Patriots’ collector’s item.

Brady couldn't be there in person this Opening Day, but he sure was keeping watch over his boys.
I want to congratulate the @RedSox for dropping ANOTHER Boston banner today. I couldn’t make it but I think a couple Super Bowl Champs were there to help out! @RobGronkowski @Edelman11 @BumpNrunGilm0re— Tom Brady (@TomBrady) April 9, 2019
