Last week, a large group of area school kids showed up at Prospect Energy Ballpark to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat. Part of the celebration was to have two Rays players read the book to the kids. You would think they would have chosen two players that could, you know, Read. Instead the poor kids were subjected to the stylistic orations of Ruddy Lugo and Shawn Camp. Channel 10 News was on the scene to cover
the birth of the baby panda the reading. You can find video of the event and the reading on their website. We have given many talks in front of large crowds and we admit it is not an easy thing to do. But the last thing you want after reading to a bunch of children is for Little Johnny to ask his teacher why he can read better than a professional baseball player.
