The Tampa Bay Rays had a little fun on Friday at the expense of their new multi-millionaire, 21-year-old shortstop Wander Franco.

Franco, who is known for his love of expensive cars, decided to park in the spot of president of baseball operations Erik Neander in the morning before the team’s first Grapefruit League game against the Boston Red Sox, as he is not making the trip to Fort Myers.  So manager Kevin Cash made sure that he knew that the players don’t have reserved spots by finding a different place for his Range Rover.
