Opening Week with the Rays!

The Ray Team was ready and waiting for the first home stand of the 2010 season! The returning members were excited to cheer on their favorite team for another season, while the new members were anxious to create memories here in the Trop!

Ray Team 2010

The Ray Team participated in many events over the first week of the season, including our in game promotions, Centerfield Suffle, and Meet the Ray Team. Just like at Fan Fest, Ray fans were given the opportunity to meet and greet with their favorite Tampa Bay Spirit Squad! The girls were selling the 2010 Ray Team calendar, which benefits the Rays Baseball Foundation, while signing autographs and taking pictures with fans.

  
Meet the Ray Team

 

Besides signing autographs and meeting fans, the Ray Team was also able to help out with Kids Run the Bases after Sunday’s game. Cheering on young Rays fans as they run the bases like their favorite players is what makes Sunday’s so special for the girls!

Heading for Home

 

Getting to react with young fans as they experience running the bases for the first time is an interaction the Ray Team looks forward to week after week!

Rounding Second

Part of what makes the Ray Team love being the Official Spirit Squad of the Tampa Bay Rays is building relationships with fans young and old! By the end of the first week the veterans were happy to be back at Tropicana Field for another season, and the Rookies were anxious for the next home stand to begin! The Ray Team loved being back on the dug outs cheering on the Ray’s, and are excited for all the memories and opportunities throughout the 2010 season!
