DUNEDIN, FLA.–It seems that when a camera from Rocket Sports and Entertainment is leveled at a ball player they have a tendency to “Take One For The Team.”  It was no different on Wednesday October 1, 2014 at Grant Field when Blue Jays Instructional League catcher Matt Morgan took a glancing blow off his uniform.  None the worse for wear Morgan trotted on to first. 

Morgan, who had 11 hits and 7 RBI with the Jays in the Gulf Coast League this season.  He was drafted in the 4th round of the 2014 amateur draft out of Thorsby High School in Thorsby, Alabama.

Above, former Toronto Blue Jays great Carlos Delgado looked ready and able to coach first base on Wednesday during an Instructional League game at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium.  One item was lacking to Delgado’s uniform and that was the required batting helmet all coaches must now wear.  Delgado went to the bench but unfortunately there were none of his size, 7 3/4 available.
