Cantu, who signed autographs and posed for photos with hundreds of fans, also managed to save a win for the Rays over the Atlanta Braves later that evening with an incredible defensive play. Over 400 people attended the event, which included entertainment ranging from a steel drum musician, a bounce-house and a face painter for the kids, to a one-man circus.
