VIDEO: Rally Wookie leads Tampa Bay Rays to 18th inning victory
It’s not Halloween yet, but don’t tell that to the players and fans who were still hanging around Tropicana Field in the 18th inning to see their hometown Tampa Bay Rays battle the Baltimore Orioles in a key Wild Card game. We’ve heard of Rally Monkey, Rally Squirrel, but have you heard of Rally Wookie? Watch Rays OF/1B/DH Luke Scott loosen things up in the Rays dugout by donning a Star Wars Chewbacca mask (via MLB.com):
Joining him in the dugout was RHP Jamey Wright wearing some Gene Simmons (KISS) boots and a fully decked out gladiator took in the game from the stands! And it all lead to a rally go give the hometown Rays the 6-5 win! I imagine this mask may be making more appearances. It was the Rays second walk off win at home this week over a Wild Card opponent, just at the right time of year!
