Gronkowski was among a number of Patriots players invited to attend the Red Sox Opening Day ceremonies at Fenway Park last Tuesday, when they were honored on the field and threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the home opener. Of course, the Super Bowl champs made sure to bring their well-earned hardware to show off in front of the sold-out crowd at Fenway. It was good theater.
But what fans didn’t see — at least until now — is that Gronk went a little overboard while pregaming the pregame festivities and, as a result, he did some significant damage to the team’s newest trophy. The Patriots’ official Twitter account shared the story with a well-produced video on Wednesday.
