Former MLB pitcher Jamie Moyer got stuck on a ride at Disneyland Friday, according to the Associated Press.
He then did the only sensible, 21st century thing to do when stuck in such a situation: he tweeted.
Here's the initial SOS report, straight from the captain's deck of the California Screamin'.
According to Moyer, employees at the theme park attempted to palliate the stranded riders - while they were still stranded - with free Disneyland tickets. "Not sure I want them," Moyer tweeted.
No one was stuck on 'California Screamin' for more than 30 minutes, a Disney spokeswoman told the AP. The ride stopped out of standard precaution due a mechanical issue discovered mid-roller coaster run.
Moyer was in town to watch his son, a prospect in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, play a spring training game.
That seems like a priceless opportunity. But apparently, the "priceless" part of his day was getting stuck on a roller coaster.
