Rays Wives gearing up for Mystery Ball event

ST. PETERSBURG -- The Rays Wives were busy on Wednesday night wrapping baseballs for the Mystery Ball to raise money for All Children's Hospital.

The event will take place at Tropicana Field on Saturday, Aug. 30 at Gates 1 and 5.

For $40, fans can purchase a bag containing a baseball signed by a Rays player or coach. Other current or former players like Derek Jeter and Paul Molitor have also signed balls.

Rays hitting coach Derek Shelton and his wife, Ali, co-chair the event, which has raised nearly $100,000 over the past three years.
