ST. PETERSBURG Today’s pregame entertainment came in the form of Mindy, a 22-year-old Umbrella Cockatoo, who sat perched on Joe Maddon’s arm as he walked through the Rays clubhouse.

Later, Mindy sat on Maddon’s shoulder during his pregame media session.

Tomorrow’s guest will also be from the animal kingdom and will be epic, Maddon promised.
