Rays dress for (what they hope is) success for trip west
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays jetted west in their Sunday best.
Sunday evening marked the start of another themed road trip for Tampa Bay, and this one had a formal feel. The Rays, following a 7-5 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday at Tropicana Field, prepared to fly to begin a 10-game, 11-day jaunt against the Oakland Athletics, Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers.
Officially, the theme was a nod to James Bond and his slick threads. But relievers Jake McGee and Brad Boxberger pulled off an impressive fashion statement that served as their own hat tip to Hollywood.
Here are a few of the sights ...
