Share on Nextdoor

From the press release:

In recognition of the on-field heroics of Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Sam Fuld, the Rays have scheduled a Super Sam Fuld Superhero Cape giveaway for the May 29 game against the Cleveland Indians at 1:40 p.m. at Tropicana Field.

Let it be known that I was the first person to compare Fuld to Superman. Then again, since Superman has a Sam Fuld poster on his wall, maybe I have that backward. The first 10,000 fans ages 14 and younger will get a chance to soar through the air like the Sam I Am.

Inclement weather caused the third game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Redsox to be postponed Wednesday night. The game will be rescheduled at a later date. Barring the ecosystem inside Tropicana Field getting some hellacious humidity, look for Thursday's series opener against the Minnesota Twins to start on time; it's scheduled for a 6:40 p.m. start.

"Sam being Super" in the new "Manny being Manny"

To celebrate the unprecedented impact OF Sam Fuld has had on the playing field and in the world of social media - #LegendOfSamFuld on Twitter - the Rays announced today that they are replacing the Manny Ramirez bobblehead giveaway with a Sam Fuld superhero cape on May 29.
