This is a very important season for the Tampa Bay Rays. They have struggled of late and now is their time to bounce back and show the world that the last few seasons were just mere blips.
The Rays: Formation
A lot of people had tried to get a professional MBL team for Tampa for years but every attempt had been futile. Then the Tropicana Field was constructed in the year 1990 for the sole purpose of convincing the MLB to grant the city its very own baseball team. In 1993, the league announced that two new sides will join the MLB and that is what led to the formation of the Tampa Bay Rays in 1995. The other team was the Diamondbacks and the two franchises were to start playing in 1998.
On field performances
The Tampa Bay Rays did not get off to the best of starts. They struggled for quite a few seasons and failed to make it to the playoffs for a considerable length of time. That changed in the year 2008 when the franchise won the division title, the AL Pennant and also went all the way to the World Series only to come up short against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Two years later, they won another division title but haven’t reached those heights since. If you want to see where the Rays stand this season, grab your Tampa Bay Rays Chicago tickets and watch them take on the teams from the Windy City.
