Tampa Bay Rays infielder Daniel Robertson hit a walk-off grand slam Sunday, but it's what he did after the game that is even more noteworthy. Daniel Robertson hits the Tampa Bay Rays' first ever walk-off grand slam to beat Miami Marlins 6-4 According to the Facebook page 'Prayers for Joey,' barely 90 minutes after the game ended, Robertson was at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital in St. Pete. He came to see Joey Johnston Jr., son of longtime Tampa Tribune sports writer Joey Johnston. Johnston Jr. is a sophomore at Alonso High School in Tampa and fractured his spine and broke his neck earlier this month, leaving him hospitalized. Doctors aren't sure if he'll walk again. Robertson told the Washington Post it was something he would never forget, and that it was a pretty special moment.
