Bruins players take BP at Fenway, aren’t half-bad at baseball

I always wonder how good professional athletes would be in other sports than their own. Like, if you pitted the Boston Bruins against the Boston Red Sox in a two-game series, one game baseball, one game hockey, which team would have a better overall performance?

If this video is any indication, I'm going with the Bruins. While none of them hit any home runs while taking in batting practice at Fenway, they did blast a few balls pretty deep.

Of course, batting practice is a totally different beast than the real game. Just ask Bruins star Shawn Thornton who couldn't help but marvel in the hand speed of his Red Sox buddies.
