Pro softball team visits Tropicana Field, crushes home runs into third deck

Before facing the Bronx Bombers on Sunday, the Rays watched the Long Haul Bombers participate in a softball home run derby at Tropicana Field.

The touring sluggers were part of a pregame special, crushing a few softballs into the third deck. Rays players, including Joel Peralta and Fernando Rodney, came out of the clubhouse to watch the "hit show" and were highly impressed.
