Evan Longoria Gets Lesson from Goo Goo Dolls Drummer Mike Malinin
Baseball players have different routines to get themselves prepared for games. Some watch videos. Some play cards. Some beat the drums. Some beat other things. I had no idea that Evan Longoria practices his musical skills before games. The third baseman got a lesson before Saturday’s game from Goo Goo Dolls drummer Mike Malinin:
The Goo Goo Dolls were at The Trop to perform a concert following the Rays game Saturday night. It was part of Tampa Bay’s Summer Concert Series which began in 2008, a promotional idea that helps draw crowds to the park. The Rays generally perform well on concert days, posting a record of 26-6. They were shutout by the A’s on Saturday 8-0. Maybe they should go back to Longoria’s idea to host a Senior Prom for Senior Citizens in order to have better success.
