When a huge, 20-foot python entered the Tampa Bay Rays clubhouse this week, it terrified several of the players. But don't worry; Florida's python problem hasn't gotten that out of control yet. This python was invited.


Handlers from Busch Gardens brought the snake, named Asia, to visit the Rays as a team-building activity cooked up in manager Joe Maddon's brain. "A snake is a risk taker and a wellspring of ideas,'' Maddon tweeted. "They fit into the Rays Way." Makes total sense!


The 115-pound python's meeting with the baseball team follows previous visits this season from a cockatoo, a DJ, a magician and a merengue band.
