Wil Myers Exits Game In Pain

Wil Myers had to leave today’s Rays game against the Pittsburgh Pirates after fouling a ball off his knee.

According to Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times (@TBTimes_JSmith)

“Myers, the reigning AL Rookie of the Year, limped around as he tried to walk it off, getting attended to by athletic trainer Paul Harker. Myers bent over a few times, clearly in discomfort, and was helped into the dugout by Harker.”

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
