RUSH Worship At Toronto's Rogers Centre

The Toronto Sun has issued the following report:

"Toronto Blue Jays catcher Gregg Zaun makes no secret of his music interests or the fact that he is a huge fan of the band RUSH. So at a recent Toronto game against the Oakland Athletics at the Rogers Centre, Zaun was sufficiently psyched when he learned that RUSH bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee was in attendance. Zaun, whose first plate appearance each home game is accompanied by the RUSH tune 'Limelight', asked the stadium audio crew to play 'Limelight' for all of his plate appearances that night as a tribute to Lee. 'I was watching him as I walked to the plate to see if he noticed but he was talking to someone the first time up,' Zaun said. 'The second time, though, he stood up and applauded. That was so cool.' It got even cooler when Zaun took Athletics pitcher Kirk Saarloos deep for a home run and pointed directly at Lee as he crossed the plate. Lee pointed right back, which made Zaun's day."
