Rays double up first-pitch theatrics

revolutionize the first pitch. The Tampa Bay Rays took things to a

strange new level Monday when it featured not one, but two

one-of-a-kind first pitches before the team’s win over the

Texas Rangers.

pitch chip from Golf Channel personality Holly

Sonders’ shot, right into the glove of Cesar Ramos, was

pretty cool — maybe not
