Ray's Rodriguez Stung By Real Ray
DAVID GREENE, host:
Good morning. I'm David Greene.
Best team in baseball so far this year? The Tampa Bay Rays. But here's a bad omen. Ray's infielder Sean Rodriguez was attacked by a ray. The ballplayer was in the ocean earlier this week when a stingray stung his heel, causing a trail of blood. Ray's teammate Jason Bartlett called 911. We were panicking, he told a Florida paper, wondering if they've got poison in them. Rodriguez is fine, and back on the field. But since the accident, his team has been stung, losing three of four.
