Rays, Andriese serve as hosts for hopeful Heart Gallery adoptee

RHP Matt Andriese was the tour guide Sunday as the Rays hosted a 10-year-old boy, Joshua, from The Heart Gallery, which works to find adoption matches for foster kids.

Joshua had his own locker in the clubhouse, hung out on the field during batting practice, brought the lineup card to home plate, and received a jersey, signed bats and other equipment and gifts from the team.

"It was pretty rewarding to see him smile like that and just have a good day out here,'' Andriese said. "Hopefully everything works out with the Heart Gallery and hopefully he finds a home.''
