Sweetbay held its fourth annual Shop With a Player event Wednesday at 13508 N Florida Ave. in Tampa. Queen Matthews teamed up with Tampa Bay Rays player Desmond Jennings, and they raced to fill carts with $1,000 in groceries in 10 minutes. Matthews said the groceries would feed kids at a community center where she works. Jennings presented a $1,000 check, donated by Pepsi, to the Rays Baseball Foundation to aid the Dugout Clubs, a community outreach program.
