Some guys have Jobu to help them hit curveballs. The Rays? They have a Seminole medicine man.
Manager Joe Maddon is always a little quirky, and so he invited 77-year-old tribal elder Bobby Henry to Tropicana Field on Monday to help his team. It didn't work — they lost to Seattle 3-0.
"We just turned him loose on the Trop," Maddon said. "If it rains in the Trop, I'll be really impressed. That will be his best moment ever."
Tropicana Field is a dome, but it reportedly began raining outside after Henry's visit.
The Rays have lost 13 of 14.
.@RaysJoeMaddon said he'd be really impressed if Medicine Man could make it rain inside Trop. #Rays first AB and it starts pouring outside.
