David Price almost didn't make it to Toronto, because his passport was in Tampa

What can you say about Toronto? It's a vibrant, multicultural Alpha World City. It's home to the tallest structure in the Western Hemisphere. And despite what IBM's Jeopardy-playing computer might think, no part of it is located in the United States of America.

That fact may have slipped David Price's mind momentarily when he forgot to bring his passport along for the Rays' current road trip, which concludes with a trip to Canada to face the Blue Jays. Finishing up a Rangers series in Texas, the lefty had planned to make a brief, indirect stop back to Florida to collect the crucial document before heading north.

But then he had a better idea: instead of getting his passport, he had his passport come to him, in the hands of his Tampa friend Tim Herbert, who had planned to go to the Blue Jays series anyway. The two then flew to Toronto together, with Price's danger of being turned away at customs averted.
