Rays unveil new alternate jerseys
The jersey will be worn occasionally at home games and on the road.
It will debut on May 1 when the Rays play host to the Boston Red Sox.
The jersey is a navy blue button-down with RAYS outlined in white trim with a light blue shadow across
the chest, according to a news release issued by the team.
The sunburst emanating from the “R” is forty percent larger than the sunburst on the team’s home and road jerseys. Light blue piping surrounds the sleeves and collar and extends down the front of the jersey. The player’s name and number are featured on the back (in navy) outlined in white.
“Rays apparel, marked by our signature sunburst and light blue accents, has been embraced by fans throughout the state of Florida and across the nation,” Rays President Matt Silverman said in the release. “The amplified sunburst on our new alternate jersey represents the brightness of our organization and its growing impact throughout the Tampa Bay region and central Florida.”
Fans may purchase the Rays new alternate jersey via raysbaseball.com and raysbeisbol.com, at the Rays Tampa Store at 400 N. Tampa Street and the Rays merchandise store at Tropicana Field.
