Surprise! Coffee talk with Rays pitcher Chris Archer

- It was a welcomed sight for people in St. Petersburg Wednesday morning: coffee, free coffee, and Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer.

The pitcher pulled up a seat and bought coffee for dozens of patrons at Kahwa Coffee on 2nd Ave. in downtown St. Pete.

He also took time to chat and take photos with fans.

His surprise meet and greet lasted about 30 minutes but no doubt was an awesome way to start the day.
