Melrose tossing out the first pitch at the Rays game

From Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times:

Lightning coach Barry Melrose, who claims, “I was a better baseball player than a hockey player,” will throw out the first pitch at Tropicana Field before Monday’s game against the Red Sox.

My dad used to have season tickets watching the Winnipeg Jets and a defenseman by the name of Barry Melrose. He used to say that Melrose was a heck of a lot better of a coach than he was a player!  So, I am sure Melrose isn’t too far off with his baseball remark.

Back in business on Tuesday as the Jets welcome former bench boss Paul Maurice and the Panthers to town.

The Moose have another day of practice.
