Seven of the Top 100 Prospects and an Ice Cream Social
Baseball America just came out with their list of baseball’s Top 100 prospects and the Rays came in strong with seven.
Outfielder Desmond Jennings was the top-ranked Rays prospect coming in at No. 6. He was followed by RHP Jeremy Hellickson (18), RHP Wade Davis (34), LHP Matt Moore (35), SS Reid Brignac (54), SS Tim Beckham (67), and RHP Alex Colome (68).
Meanwhile, the Rays have come up with an interesting and tasty idea for Saturday as they will host an Ice Cream Social for fans at Charlotte Sports Park. The event will take place at the main stadium from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission and parking are free.
Rays players will take batting practice on the stadium field from 11:20 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Following practice, players will serve free ice cream. Activities throughout the day include an interactive kids’ zone featuring inflatable hitting and pitching machines, and games for the entire family. The Rays’ team mascot Raymond will also be present. The Charlotte Sports Park Box Office and Team Store will be open during the event as well.
