Milledge gets his page in Sports Illustrated

Not to be overshadowed by the Rays first-ever appearance on the cover of Sports Illustrated is a full-page spread on Lastings Milledge, the Palmetto product who roams center field for the Washington Nationals.

A dapper Milledge appears in the “First Person” section of this week’s issue. You know, the one with Rays leftfielder Carl Crawford in all his cartoon glory on the cover.

Milledge answers six questions. The topics range from the negative reaction he received from his former teammates on the New York Mets to his ability to play the tuba, which he learned in the seventh grade.

“I miss it,” Milledge is quoted as saying.

Who knew?
