Animal kingdom conflict of the day
The Rays announced plans for their first Bark at the Park, in which fans can bring their dogs to the game. But it's Aug. 5, which is also the day they are giving away bobbleheads of their feline friend, DJ Kitty. Furthermore, there will be lots of kids and a postgame concert by the Wiggles.
