It didn’t take very long to confirm that one of the most ridiculous rumors of the MLB postseason was completely false.
On Monday night, Thomas Beisner, a Kentucky sports television host, tweeted out that a Red Sox fan was escorted out of the park during Game 3 of the ALDS for picking up a live ray out of the tank at Tropicana Field and throwing it.
On Tuesday morning, a Rays team official said that was false. Check out the tweets below.
