Jennings ready for 'Shop with a Player' event

ST. PETERSBURG -- Desmond Jennings will join a lucky Sweetbay Supermarket customer on Wednesday at 11 a.m. ET for its annual "Shop with a Player" event.

The Sweetbay Supermarket at 13508 North Florida Avenue in Tampa will host the event.

The Rays' center fielder will be joined by Queen Matthews, who will attempt to fill her basket with $1,000 worth of groceries in just 10 minutes.

Jennings will also present a $1,000 gift card, donated by Pepsi Beverages Company, to the Rays Baseball Foundation to benefit the Dugout Clubs, a program in which Jennings has participated for two seasons.
