The Tampa Bay Rays had a ho hum season, ending up in the middle of the AL East and missing the playoffs, but their promising young talent is expected to get them back to the playoffs in 2010. Their starting rotation is deep, their bullpen is dependable and they have both strength and speed – will it be enough to get them to the playoffs? See for yourself with tickets to Tropicana Field to watch the Tampa Bays Rays in action in 2010!
The Tampa Bay Rays, formerly Devil Rays, were part of baseball’s last round of expansion. They played their first game in 1998 and were an immediate draw in Tampa Bay. The highlight of those early years was when hometown hero Wade Boggs became the 22nd player to reach 3,000 hits and the first to do so with a homerun.
In an effort to shake things up Tampa Bay dropped the “Devil” from their team name prior to the 2008 season. Now known simply as the Tampa Bay Rays they hope to have finally exorcised their losing ways. With a young and exciting team this might be the year it happens. However, playing in the super competitive American League East against teams like the Red Sox and Yankees makes this an especially difficult challenge.
