RHP Matt Bush bond reduction hearing postponed



A decision on the potential bond reduction for Rays minor league pitcher Matt Bush has been postponed until Monday due to a health issue with the prosecutor.


Bush is in Charlotte County jail facing seven charges stemming from a Mar. 22 DUI hit-and-run arrest in North Port. He was expecting a decision today in a hearing whether his $1.015 million bail will be reduced. In today's hearing, Roy Silver, a director of the Winning Inning in Clearwater, testified on Bush's behalf on his experience with him during 2010, when the 26-year-old signed with the Rays.

Tony Tufano, son of the victim in the crash, 72-year-old Tony Tufano, read a two-page statement on what his father went through, and how it's impacted the family. He also gave a couple photos of Tufano to the judge.
