Last night Robin and I were at Tropicana Field for the Rays v. Oakland A's. It was not a good night for the Rays. They lost 7-2. Today wasn't any better with another loss to Oakland, 7-3. The Rays go into the All-Star Break with a two-game losing streak.
Last night things went sour when Matt Garza gave up a two run homer to Rajai Davis into the left field seats. We were sitting in left center and the ball landed in the seats in left field near the baseline. I couldn't see the fan who caught the ball. What I do know is that the fan who caught the A's home run ball refused to throw it back onto the field. This tradition began in Wrigley Field as far as I know. The fan at Tropicana Field last night refused to throw the ball back onto the field.
