Denard Span, man of the people, spent most of Thursday's game falling into the stands
But, if you were a fan down the left-field line during the Rays' 6-3 win over the Red Sox on Thursday, then you were lucky. Because Span decided to make a couple impromptu visits into the stands. Look at him trying to give this guy a hug in the fourth inning:

And in the ninth, a quick visit to the left-field corner. Raymond what are you doing?
MLB.com's Bill Chastain talked to Span about his fan visits after the game:
"Trying to get some nachos," Span said, a statement that would make Prince Fielder proud.
Manager Kevin Cash was more just happy about the well-placed Raymond.
"It was good we had Raymond out there the second time to help him up."
