Scots head baseball coach Fred Oliver might want to consider a bold fashion statement for his team this coming season. Last night in Tampa, the Rays donned hats with a plaid brim for the first time. Pretty interesting.
Tampa Bay, which has already wrapped up a playoff berth, also gave away 20,000 tickets to last night’s game against Baltimore. Fans packed the stands only to see the Rays lose to the Orioles, 2-0. However, Tampa Bay maintained its half-game lead over the New York Yankees in the American League East.
The winner of the division will take on the Texas Rangers in the first round of the playoffs next week. God, it feels so good to say that.
