The “Big Game James Club’’ Lives On

A nice note from Jerry Crasnick’s piece on everyone’s favorite former Rays right-hander:

How much did the Rays respect Shields? During their time in Tampa Bay, Shields and his wife, Ryane, started the “Big Game James Club’’ and invited foster children to games at Tropicana Field. Even though Shields is now in Kansas City, the Rays plan to continue the initiative in his name. The news came as a relief to Shields, who said several foster children in the program were adopted during his tenure with the Rays.

The rest of the profile is worth reading for those missing Shields during camp.
