TRIPLE PLAY

Hot start

SS Yunel Escobar has four hits in his first four at-bats this spring, going 2-for-2 in each game he's played. Escobar had a double and a single Sunday.

Quote of the day

“What a shock.”

— Rick Vaughn, Rays vice president of public relations, after hearing manager Joe Maddon say he told San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick during a fundraiser dinner Saturday night in Tampa that he played quarterback at Lafayette College.

#RoToTrop

Randi Oomens (Tribune, March 2, 2014) reported Sunday that donations to her PayPal account to help pay for her trip to Tampa Bay for the Rays' season-opening series exceeded $1,700. The trip costs $1,600. All money received above $1,600 will be placed into a fund to help Rays fans in the future who need financial assistance attending games at the Trop.
