Booking Tampa Bay Rays Player Appearances
Major League Baseball’s Tampa Bay Rays are members of the American League East division and based in St. Petersburg, Florida calling Tropicana Field home. The team was established in 1998, and was originally called the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, with their name shortened to its current moniker in 2008. While it took the team nearly a decade to achieve some success, since 2007 the Tampa Bay team has had four straight winning seasons and three playoff appearances. They’ve won the Eastern division title twice and the American League East pennant once, in 2008. First baseman Fred McGriff spent five seasons with the Rays, from 1998 through 2001, and returned in 2004, spending the final season of his career here. During his time with the team he hit 99 homers and batted over .290. Scott Kazmir pitched for Tampa Bay from 2004 through 2009 as one of the stars of the team’s pitching rotation, while first baseman Aubrey Huff had a major impact on the team’s win and loss ratio during his seven years here. In their best season to date, 2008, Joe Maddon managed the Rays, helping to take them to the World Series where they met the Philadelphia Phillies. The roster included outfielder Carl Crawford, centerfielder B.J. Upton and Golden Glove winner, Carlos Pena at first base. Today, the team continues to be managed by Joe Maddon, with leading players that include third baseman Evan Longoria, second baseman Will Rhymes, as well as Upton and Pena.
