The Tampa Bay Rays have made their mark on the world of Major League Baseball in such a short period of time. Founded in 1998, they’ve become regular contenders season after season. While we await their next run for a World Series trophy, here are a few really fun pieces of gear for Rays fans to show off their pride.
The Bucs, Rays and Lightning are all finding new levels of success, so celebrate it with this clever T-shirt. It’s available in navy (for Bolts and Rays fans) and red (for Bucs fans) and comes in sizes small to 4XL.
Why wear a plain face mask when you can sport this number? It’s designed for year-round use thanks to its soft, breathable construction. It’s washable and reusable and can be stored easily in a pocket or purse when not in use.
We love the classic look of the Tampa Bay Rays logo. (Did you know the team’s original logo showed an aquatic “Devil Ray,” the original mascot?) The team may play its home games in downtown St. Petersburg, but the hat and logo reminds everyone that they play for the Tampa Bay region.
The friendly – and domed – confines of Tropicana Field means that fans don’t have to worry about toweling off after a grueling Sunday afternoon game. Save this beauty for the beaches or the pool while you dream of another World Series run.
If there’s anything as sacred as nine innings of Rays baseball, it’s 18 holes of golf on the day before or after a game. Keep your cool on the fairway with this Tampa Bay-themed golf towel.
The blue coloring on this blanket reminds of us days spent by the pool or Gulf of Mexico. It’s perfect for the back of the sofa while you await the next homestand.
The Tampa Bay Rays have a history of having sluggers in their lineup, dating all the way back to when future Hall of Famer Wade Boggs played for the team. Boggs’ 3,000th career hit came on Aug. 7, 1999, as a Ray – and it was a home run.
