Rays build a playground in Tarpon Springs
Rays employees led by principal owner Stuart Sternberg spent most of Saturday in Tarpon Springs building a playground at the Union Academy Family Center.
The Rays partnered with volunteers from Citizens Alliance for Progress, Inc, and organizers from KaBOOM! as more than 200 people teamed for the one-day build, the fourth such project the team has done around the Tampa Bay area.
Tarpon Springs Mayor David O. Archie thanked the Rays and presented Stermberg with a key to the city. Sternberg lauded the volunteers and said the organization takes as much pride in these type of community projects as any success on the field.
