'Biggest smile I've seen'

CHRIS ZUPPA | Times

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer and mascot Raymond visit Janell Nunez of Clearwater at All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg on Wednesday. Rays player Sean Rodriguez also visited the hospital, accompanied by his daughter, Sofia, 5. "This means a lot to her," said Francis Mota-Nunez, Janell's mother. "We've been here for eight days. It's probably the biggest smile I've seen so far since we've been here." Archer later said, "I come here and I take so much from these kids because I realize that they are teaching me by being here and smiling."
