Rays Follow Up on their Brilliant Start

Posted on: May 20, 2010

Three years ago the Tampa Bay Rays were the worst team in baseball, no one showed up to watch the games, and hardly any fans stayed loyal to them.  This all has changed in the last three seasons in 2007, the Rays only had about 17,000 people that showed up for the games, and usually only that many people when the Yankees or Redsox were in town. Luckily that was the year the club made it to the World Series.  The attendance has sky rocketed since then , the average attendance currently is roughly 23,000 people.  The Rays “break out year” has really turned around that franchise into something great.  In the 2010 season, the Rays are not only first in the AL East but their leading the entire Major Leagues with the best record.  With their current success the Rays hopefully can snag a championship before some of their veteran players such as Carl Crawford contracts are up.  Well we should all enjoy this season and hope it continues for a long time, this brings light to Tampa and also its surrounding area.
