Zim Bear Craze
The “Zim Bear” is becoming a national craze. As you can well imagine, everyone at the Rays’ camp is having a good time teasing Don Zimmer about the promotional item that will be a giveaway in the Rays June 29th game against Detroit. Zim, who is a baseball treasure, has been a good sport about the “Zim Bear” and took time to pose with the bear when he arrived Friday morning. Zimmer said Tigers manager and old friend Jim Leyland has called him several times to express his candid opinion about the Zim Bear.
Shortly after Zim’s photo shoot, Ben Zobrist arrived, which signified that all of the position players have arrived to camp.
