PETA sends open letter to Rays after Lobaton HR

by Aaron Giddens
So for the second time this year and third time ever, a home run landed in the Rays Touch Tank. This time it was Lobaton's walk-off homerun that forced game 4 of this years ALDS, which you can see here.

In response to that homerun, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), one of the largest animal rights groups in the world, is again furious and calls for the touch tank to be shut down and removed and the rays returned to the ocean.
