Tampa Bay, FL - UPDATE 1 - Actually, this story comes from St. Petersburg, Florida. It is not clear why the baseball team bears the initials TB on their caps.
The TB team lost by two runs. They did manage to out-spit the Red Sox 532 to 345. However, the TB team had more spits left on.
One umpire was hit by a spit ball and had to leave the game to be tested for TB. This delayed the game by 15 minutes, but not the spitting, which was actually more intense during this time.
We don't want to know why the Sox are Red.
[We would like to compliment the camera crew on the High Definition picitures of the aspartame laced boogers. Good job camera team. It is so boring between pitches.. great to see that TB spit.]
