Costner to "crash" Rays party
Longtime movie star Kevin Costner will be the star entertainer at the Rays' Nov. 8 unveiling of their new uniforms and logos at St. Petersburg's downtown Straub Park.
Costner, who starred in baseball-themed movies including Bull Durham and Field of Dreams, will perform with his rock band, Modern West, at around 6:30 p.m., following the 5:30 "fashion" show, featuring current and former players, such as Wade Boggs and Fred McGriff, modeling the new uniforms.
There will be a fireworks show after the free concert. Activities start at 4 p.m.
The Rays will make appearances throughout the Tampa Bay area on Nov. 9, including a noon event at Gaslight Park in downtown Tampa, and at Champs retail stores that night.
