BY foxsports • September 5, 2014

TAMPA, Fla. (Sept. 5, 2014) -- On Sunday, Sept. 7 at 5:00 p.m., Sun Sports, the statewide television home of the Tampa Bay Rays, will debut a new episode of "Inside the Rays" upon conclusion of the Rays vs. Baltimore Orioles game. Titled "Unlikely Journey," this episode will provide viewers with an all-access look at the life and career of Rays relief pitcher Grant Balfour.

Only 28 players from Australia have made it to the Major Leagues, but despite switching positions, battling injuries and repeatedly climbing back through the minor leagues, Balfour made it, and made it big -- the World Series, the All-Star Game, a MLB team save record and more. Find out what drives him to keep going and conquer each challenge in his path, and how his competitive spirit inspires his father, David Balfour's, battle with cancer.
