No need to worry about Nick Catellanos. Don Kelly was on deck, in his spot, but that's only because Castellanos was in the bathroom. — James Schmehl (@jamesschmehl) July 4, 2014 It was a brief scare, because it was early in the game, and apparently the team ran out of toilet paper, but Castellanos made it back in time for his at bat.
