Whither Aubrey Huff? Optimus Prime and Bumblebee assist in Marlins Park first pitch

Youngster Timothy Stahlsmith was representing the Give Kids the World Village during his ceremonial first pitch at Marlins Park on Wednesday night, but that wasn't all he brought with him to the mound. Joining him were Transformers Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, there to promote the opening of Universal Orlando's new Transformers ride.

Miami's game was against the Rays, and longtime Devil Ray Aubrey Huff had to wish for at least one day that he was still on the team. Huff, who is quite possibly the biggest Transformers fan in MLB history, has Autobot and Decepticon tattoos on his shoulders.
