Rays clubhouse welcomes Latin band into mix

Tampa-based Latin band Sol Caribe was the latest clubhouse entertainment for the Rays.

It worked. Reliever Joel Peralta cut the carpet, dancing with a female member of the band. Outfielder Matt Joyce clapped and bobbed his head to the beats. The night’s starter, left-hander Matt Moore, entered the clubhouse shaking his backside.
“It’s just one of those things we do here in Tampa (Bay),” Rays left-hander David Price said. “You probably don’t see it in a whole lot of other places, especially not at a time like right now, not during a season. We’ve had this type of thing happen a couple times, so we all enjoy it.

“It lightens the mood, and we all appreciate it.”
