Stamkos, other Bolts to take swings Thursday



Star forward Steven Stamkos and Lightning teammates Teddy Purcell, Nate Thompson and Mike Smith will take batting practice and throw out the first pitch for Thursday's game against the Red Sox.

The Rays had been looking for an opportunity to honor the Lightning for their playoff run.

Stamkos played baseball through high school and claims that he was a pretty good hitter.
