Suite Rays!

John scored us tickets in the Pepsi Suite again for last Friday night's game against the Orioles. It was a special night on two accounts. Before the game, they had a special presentation of retiring the call signs of Officer Yaslowitz, Sgt. Baitinger and Officer Crawford; the three St Pete officers who lost their lives in the line of duty earlier this year. All three had served as Security for the Rays during games. After the presentation, Officer Yaslowitz's oldest son got to throw out the first pitch. Our young phenom pitcher, 21 year old Jeremy Hellickson pitched his first complete games in the majors, allowing only 4 Oriole hits and we WON!! David Price got the dubious honor of shoving the whipped cream pie in Jeremy's face as he was being interviewed by local TV stations!
