Zobrist meets fans to promote wife's CD

ST. PETERSBURG -- As Ben Zobrist was signing baseballs, his wife, Julianna, was signing CDs.

The couple held a meet-and-greet at the Rays Team Store at Tropicana Field on Saturday afternoon before Tampa Bay's matchup with Baltimore to promote Julianna's new album, "Say It Now."

"We signed a lot of autographs and sold a lot of CDs," Ben said. "It was a great event and great to just connect with some people, too."

The Rays veteran said that for 2 1/2 hours, there was a steady line of fans who wished to meet the two and have their memorabilia signed.

Fans who frequent Tropicana Field for Rays games may already recognize the album's hit single, "Behind Me," which plays before each of Ben's at-bats. He added that the album is starting to gain some airtime on the radio and hopes the Christian-inspired music will gain even more support from local stations.
