American Idol winner helps support youth baseball

PHILADELPHIA -- American Idol winner Scotty McCreery sang Take Me Out to the Ballgame in the seventh inning at Citizens Bank Park on Thursday night.

But that wasn't the only reason he was there. He also threw out the ceremonial first pitch and presented the Phillies' RBI program a $5,000 check to support their efforts. Philadelphia is just one ballpark stop for McCreery, who is on a six-ballpark tour to help show his support for youth baseball.

McCreery won Season 10 of the popular TV show.
