Favorite Players:
(current and past)
Longo, Kazmir, McGriff, Price, Upton, Pena, Balfour, Howell, Aki, Bartlett, Huff, Gomes, Cantu, Wigginton
Why I am a fan:
Lost interest in baseball as a youngster due to my heroes' serious moral flaws (I was a Mets fan in the 80's). Once I moved to FL, I began attending Spring Training games and my passion returned. The Rays were the local team and they were also in their infancy.
Favorite Moments:
Gomes mauling Duncan. Longo's back to back homers in the playoffs. Perez scoring in extra innings. Kaz winning the crowd free pizzas. Tailgaiting at Ferg's. Price shutting down the Sox.
