MUST SEE: Panthers' Olsen tosses first pitch at Charlotte Knights game

Updated:

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Panthers tight end Greg Olsen spent his father's day at BB&T Ballpark in uptown Charlotte.

Olsen is enjoying time away from the football field before the Panthers start training camp in late July.

He signed autographs and took pictures with fans and Knights players, and threw out the first pitch prior to Sunday’s Knights game against Indianapolis.

Olsen said throwing out the first pitch was fun, but it doesn’t compare to spending time with family.

"We got some family in town,” Olsen said. “I got my nieces and nephews from out of town here and my dad and our family, so it's been a fun day to come out here, throw out the first pitch and just enjoy the day at the park together."
