Jose Lobaton had a busy Monday, as the Rays backup catcher got married in a morning ceremony at Tropicana Field and then was starting behind the plate against the Yankees.

Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times describes the scene:

Jose and Nina walked up a red carpet to the plate, as teammate Carlos Peña and his wife, Pamela, stood up for them, and a notary did the honors.

Lobaton went 0-for-3 with a strikeout but, you know, whatever.

Hopefully the newlyweds found a more traditional locale for the honeymoon.

    I don’t know why, but “Lobaton” sounds to me like some Swiss conglomerate that manufactures brain implants.
