Well, Tommy Tutone's version of "Jenny," at least.
Here is what the team's lineup looked like for Thursday's game:
And Maddon was quick to acknowledge the oddity of the numerical order:
But the lineup didn't give last-place Tampa Bay any luck against Detroit starter Max Scherzer, who has had the Rays' number and two-hit them for eight innings in a 7-1 win.
Could there be any more '80s references coming in the future? Who knows, but might we suggest The Outfield? The jokes basically write themselves.
