The Tampa Bay Rays second "Players and Pooches" calendar will go on sale Wednesday, December 18 at the Pet Pal Animal Shelter and Pet Pal Veterinary Clinic, the Rays Team Store at Tropicana Field and the Rays Pro Shop and Sales Office in Tampa. The calendar will sell for $15. All proceeds from the sales will go to Pet Pal Animal Shelter.
The 12-month, full-color calendar features the following Rays and their pets: Manager Joe Maddon, Evan Longoria, David Price, Wil Myers, Desmond Jennings, Jake McGee, Matt Moore, Alex Cobb, Jeremy Hellickson, Brandon Gomes and Matt Joyce. Also featured is third base coach Tom Foley with Ace, a six-year-old German Shepherd and partner of St. Petersburg Police K-9 Officer Jeff Yaslowitz who was killed in the line of duty in January 2011. Ace was a certified patrol and narcotics dog for two years, but was retired and now lives with Jeff's family.
"I am overwhelmed and so grateful once again by the abundance of support from the players, The Maddons, Evan (Longoria) & Jaime (Edmondson), and all of the hard-working hands involved in this project. Another home run for the animals of Pet Pal Animal Shelter and our community," said Scott Daly, Executive Director of Pet Pal.
The calendar is made possible by the generosity of the Rays and the Ted Williams Museum and Hitters Hall of Fame.
