Clubhouse web gem of the day
Rays LF Sam Fuld was awarded a miniature Gold Glove for his diving catch in a 5-0 win against the Indians on Friday night. 2B Ben Zobrist presented him with a small Rawlings glove mounted on a small wooden trophy base. Apparently, a player will be voted the trophy after each game. "It's real plastic. It may be dipped," Fuld said of the trophy. "I guess my job is to give it to the next winner."
Manager Joe Maddon praised the Lightning, which lost the Eastern Conference final to the Bruins. "I hope everybody understands how great of a season they did have," he said. "They've got to be proud of what they did, and it's just a great building block to the future."
