Long Time Coming
Having been on board covering the Rays since their inception, I sometimes have to pinch myself to believe how drastically things have changed for the better.
Saturday’s Fan Fest brought out an overwhelming contingent of Rays fans to Tropicana Field and today a nice gathering of fans have come out to watch the first workout for pitchers and catchers at Charlotte Sports Park. The team is no longer a bunch of no names, rather they are a popular collection of mostly young and talented players who are now the hunted. Should be interesting this spring to see how the team handles their new identity. After years of frustration, everything seems to be falling into place for the Tampa Bay franchise.
