OAKLAND (CBS Sports) – Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez threw a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays. His catcher for the game was John Jaso.
Now with the Oakland Athletics, Jaso received a gift prior to Monday evening’s opening day game against his former teammates: A Rolex watch from Hernandez as a “thank you.”
Jaso repaid Hernandez by getting the A’s first hit of the night, which was a double with one out in the fourth inning.
