ASPEN, Colo. (AP) -- Evan Longoria bundled up before stepping out into the cold, zipping his bright blue winter jacket all the way up, putting on his scarf and pulling his gray stocking cap tight over his ears.

This wasn't exactly baseball weather.

The Tampa Bay Rays third baseman spent Saturday hanging out with fellow Red Bull athletes and taking in the dizzying sights and loud sounds of the Winter X Games.

For a change, Longoria was just a fan -- gushing over meeting Mark McMorris, who won the snowboard slopestyle competition.

And for once he didn't draw a crowd, because nobody really knew who he was. He wasn't the All-Star who signed a lucrative new contract in the offseason.

No, he was simply that guy shivering like everyone else.
