Rays Triple Play: Notes from camp

Published:   |   Updated: March 11, 2014 at 08:55 AM

Here come the Rays

OK, two of their road games were against the Red Sox and another was against the Yankees — both huge draws on their own. Still, the Rays lead the majors this spring in average road attendance at 8,838 in five road games.

Lending a hand

Proceeds from today’s game against the visiting Twins will be donated to the Rays community partners in Charlotte County: Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast, the Charlotte County Family YMCA, Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity and Charlotte County Homeless Coalition.

Stat of the day

.462: 3B Evan Longoria’s batting average after his two-hit day Monday that included his second home run of the spring. It was a long blast that easily cleared the Green Monster South in left field at jetBlue Park in Fort Myers. The faux Green Monster is reported to have “similar dimensions” as Boston’s real Green Monster, which is 37 feet tall.
