After two misses earlier in the game the Tampa Bay Rays ball boy was due. On a line drive off the bat of Matt Joyce in the bottom of the sixth inning, he makes a great catch and gets a rousing ovation.
The Rays bullpen first scattered to “protect” themselves and then it was high fives all-around. Not only are the Rays starters giving the bullpen a much needed rest in July, now the ball boy is doing to his part to save the bully.
