Rays teammates David Price and Chris Archer were at the MLB Fan Cave this week taping a segment for Tuesday night’s MLB Off the Bat on MTV2. Price, Archer, and show hosts Melanie Iglesias and Chris Distefano took part in a game called “splash pong”, which is beer pong with buckets full of various substances. When a shot is sank, instead of drinking the contents, you’re forced to dump them over your head. Price and Iglesias lost, and the former Cy Young winner got the worst of it – he was forced to dump milk, Gatorade, and soap bubbles on his head, while Archer only had to dump the Gatorade and soap onto himself.
Archer even got the upper hand after his team won the game, taking the remaining bucket of milk and throwing it onto his much higher paid teammate. We’ll see if Archer’s success in the…splash pong game translates to the mound, which Archer will take on Tuesday as the Rays host the Orioles at Tropicana Field.
