Having been formed in 1998, Tampa Bay Rays is one of the youngest entrants in the competitive world of the Major League Baseball. The franchise is based out of St. Petersburg, Florida. The Rays are placed in the American League where they play in the East division. The team plays its home games in the Tropicana Field.
Filling a void
For three decades there had been an urgent need for a local baseball team in the MLB. In spite of countless tries, no MLB based club or expansion franchise came. However all that changed in 1995 when a local collaboration under Vince Naimoli was able to put together Tampa Bay’s very first MLB franchise.
Initially the franchise, known as the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, did not have a promising start to their campaign in the league. In fact the first half decade was so bad that it was not until 2004 that the team was able to lift itself off from the bottom of the table.
Turning things around
A change of leadership seemed to turn things around in 2005 when the controlling interest of the team was handed over to Stuart Sternberg. Two years later, the name of the franchise was changed to Tampa Bay Rays. The significance was not lost on the fans as the very next year the club started living up to its potential. With one AL pennant and two division titles already under its belt, this is one club that is going places. Be sure not to miss them live n action; buy Tampa Bay Rays Kansas City tickets now.
