PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Kevin Kiermaier can flag down fly balls better than anyone. Apparently he's pretty talented with a cue stick, too.

Among the activities that took place at Saturday's Fan Fest in St. Petersburg was a nine-ball match between the Rays' Platinum Glove Award-winning center fielder and Jeanette Lee, aka "The Black Widow."

Kiermaier came away with an upset win after making some nice shots, including one he banked in for the win. Kiermaier said that Lee was "cool," and he received a signed souvenir cue ball from her for his effort.
