Former Ray Kapler Explores Fall Of Matt Bush

Posted May 5th, 2014 @ 1:45pm by Steve Carney

Two years ago, Matt Bush was a former top-overall pick who was looking to try and put his baseball career back in order with another chance given to him by Andrew Friedman and the Tampa Bay Rays.

That chance ended in March of 2012, when Bush was involved in a traffic accident while intoxicated that severely injured motorcyclist Tony Tufano.  Bush now resides in a north Florida prison, serving four years after pleading no contest to charges against him from the accident.

Former Ray Gabe Kapler, who now works for Fox Sports, traveled to Hamilton Correctional Institute in Jasper to meet up with Bush, and find out how an apparent "can't-miss" prospect could miss so badly.
