Don Kelly summoned to on-deck circle while Nick Castellanos went to the bathroom

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.
