Joe Maddon turned into garden gnome for Rays giveaway

One of our favorite pieces of swag from the Tampa Bay Rays' promotional schedule is getting handed out at today's Yankees game: Joe Maddon has been turned into a garden gnome. Last year's giveaway highlight was the creepy Zim Bear with the face of Don Zimmer on a teddy bear. Not to be out-creepied, Joe is dressed in Rays blue with a pointy hat and his trademark glasses. The game starts at 7:10 p.m. at Tropicana Field, and since this is the Yankees, tickets start at $17. —Sharon Kennedy Wynne
