Joe Maddon apparently has some sort of fascination with wild animals. He has already had penguins, and cockatoos as guests in the locker room this season. Maddon upped the ante today prior to the teams contest against the Mariners, with another special guest, but this time, it was a 20-foot reticulated python.
USAToday was able to capture some photos of this beast, and the team seemed to welcome him with open arms:
The Rays are currently three games back of the Red Sox in the AL East, pending their contest with the aforementioned Mariners tonight. Maybe they can get the python on the field; he could definitely cover some ground.
