Rays Fan Shares Updates of Red Sox-Orioles Score on White Board at the Trop
The Rays are not in the business of scoreboard watching as the season winds down. The fans are suffering as a result, and they’ve resorted to writing the score on a dry erase white board to help spread the word as Jimmy Traina pointed out:
That sign was held up in the 7th inning of the Rays-Yankees game after Baltimore went up on Boston following Robert Andino’s 3-run inside-the-park home run. The sign produced a lot of cheers among the nearby fans:
The Red Sox-Orioles score was displayed on one of the scoreboards in the outfield, but the board rotated through all the scores in the league. That means the key score for Rays fans only showed up every handful of minutes. I’m guessing this is by design because the Rays want their players focusing on winning their games rather than worrying about Boston’s scores. The fans may suffer somewhat, but with all the high-tech phones, many fans should be up-to-date.
