Retired Pittsburgh Steeler Charlie Batch spoke to staff and the inmate population at SCI Mercer on Feb. 12. He talked about his time with the Steelers, his sister's death, how he kept motivated throughout his career and his nonprofit organization, Best of the Batch Foundation, where he is devoted to improving the lives of children and families from impoverished communities around southwestern Pennsylvania.

His NFL career began with the Detroit Lions in 1998, and he was picked up by the Steelers in 2002. After 15 years in the NFL, he retired after the 2012 season with two Super Bowl victories under his belt. His speech was well received by all.
