Meat Loaf and the Marlins

               The musician Meat Loaf, best known for his song "Bat Out of Hell," took part in a Hollywood celebrity softball game on the field at Dodger Stadium a couple of hours before the Marlins and Dodgers hooked up.

               Mr. Loaf, as the New York Times always refers to him on second reference, has a connection to the Marlins -- albeit a thin one.Meat loaf

              One of the musicians who performed on Meat Loaf's signature song was Todd Rundgren, whose son Rex was an infielder in the Marlins' farm system for a number of years. Rex Rundgren never made it to the big leagues and is now at Double A Tulsa in the Colorado organization.

              At any rate, Meat Loaf pitched for one of the celebrity teams and earned the win.
