The Tampa Bay Rays have not had a great road trip to Chicago, dropping two of the first three games at U.S. Cellular Field. They set a team record by committing four errors in an inning Sunday. And now it appears even the team's hotel is working against them.
Rays Radio play-by-play man Dave Wills found himself trapped in the elevator at the hotel as he was trying to leave to get lunch.
Anyone else get stuck in an elevator today? #rRays— Dave Wills (@davewills34) April 28, 2014
He then tweeted a picture as proof of his dilemma.
Still stuck... Going on 15 minutes now... pic.twitter.com/eCF3U4qZKu— Dave Wills (@davewills34) April 28, 2014
He even took questions from people about his situation.
It seemed that he might not make it out in time to get where he needed to be.
#stuckinelevator for 25 minutes and counting... And I was gonna be early for lunch for a change!— Dave Wills (@davewills34) April 28, 2014
But in the end, he was finally rescued. It took long enough though!
Finally got out!!! 30 minutes!— Dave Wills (@davewills34) April 28, 2014
And who was he going to meet for lunch? None other than Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times!
A Chicago native, we can only imagine this is the only time Wills is going to be pleased to have his hometown in the rear-view mirror.
The Rays and White Sox are scheduled to wrap up the series tonight at 8:10 (weather permitting), with coverage on 620 WDAE and 95.3 FM starting at 7:00.
