Former Pittsburgh Steeler Hines Ward put smiles on parents faces Monday night as he visited babies in the NICU at St. Vincent Hospital.
Hines signed autographs, took pictures and even held some of the newborn babies. He was in town Monday night because he was the speaker at the Erie Times News “Varsity Cup” event. “These families are going through so much, you know it can be a very stressful time, they’re here for many weeks sometimes,” said Dr. Chris Clark, President of St. Vincent Hospital. “And so obviously with Erie being so close to Pittsburgh, there’s lots of Pittsburgh Steelers fans here.” St. Vincent was one of the sponsors of the “Varsity Cup” event.
