07:58 AM ET 06.11 | Rays season ticket holder Dick Vitale was according to reports and somewhat unsurprisingly, talking when a line drive hit him in the stomach Wednesday. "It was scary -- it was a bullet," Vitale said. "I've been here for 11 years, never had a line drive come to me. Maybe a pop up. I don't know how that happened." Vitale didn't leave empty-handed, as he said Jays manager Cito Gaston sent him over a signed ball. So did the Rays, one with autographs from including manager Joe Maddon and special assistant Rocco Baldelli, and it included a message: "Dick, Keep your eyes on the field. Ha. You're always our favorite. All the best."
