Scott’s friend finds a home in Rays clubhouse

PORT CHARLOTTE Rays designated hitter Luke Scott had his prized stuff boars head mounted Thursday morning on the side of his locker inside the clubhouse at Charlotte Sports Park.
Scott killed the wild boar with his spear before the 2012 season.
The head was mounted during the Rays workout, and it greeted the players as they returned, generating some double-takes and more than a few choice 9and unprintable) words.
Scott took his hat on placed on top of the head.
“He’s officially a Ray now,” Scott said.
