Rays Wear Letterman Sweaters on Road Trip (Picture)

The Tampa Bay Rays aren’t the hottest team in baseball, but they’ve taken six of their last seven with the Red Sox and are now just two games back in the wild card race. They only have nine games left to make up the ground and they traveled to New York for their final road trip of the season.
