About the baseball: JB965680
From 4.29.17 game between the Rays and Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. Pitched by Matt Andriese in the bottom of the 4th inning to Jays catcher Russell Martin, who stroked it for an RBI Double (scoring Justin Smoak.) This was career hit #1,259 and RBI #695 for Martin.
The ball was returned to play for two more pitches to Jays' 3rd baseman Chris Coghlan, who fouled it off, and out of the game. The Jays won the game 4-1 in front of the hometown crowd.
