Matsui takes the field in Port Charlotte


OF/DH Hideki Matsui took the field for the first time as a Ray on Wednesday morning in Port Charlotte, and nearly 50 of his friends from the Japanese media were there to watch. Matsui made a solid impression on the Rays stuff by taking part in the full workout. "I can't remember the last time I saw a major-leaguer participate in a baserunning drill in extended spring training,'' field coordinator Bill Evers said. Matsui will work out with and then play a few games for the extended spring team, then report to Triple-A Durham. (Photos courtesy Tampa Bay Rays.)
