Ferg's to let fans lift mugs to Rays on Wednesday

Throughout the 2008 baseball season, Ferg's Sports Bar and Grill has been packed with Rayhawks, Rays cowbells, Rays attire and even Rays-themed tattoos.

Even though the team's magical season came to a disappointing end last week, diehard fans will flood into Ferg's on Wednesday night to salute their 2008 team one last time.

"I think Rays fans feel very blessed. Coming into this season, we were just hoping to finish with a .500 record. We never imagined we'd be in the World Series," said Ferg's owner Mark Ferguson.

"We're going to be celebrating the season and the amazing fans for their spirit. People really came out here to support the team all the way," he said.

The celebration will begin at 7 p.m. with two kegs of free beer, Buffalo wings, nachos, hot dogs and other finger foods. There will also be T-shirt and baseball cap giveaways.

"We've invited everyone," said Ferguson. "The fans, the Rays' front office and the players are all welcome."

The party also will include a DJ and an extended happy hour.

"We're going to party to a great team and look forward to next season," Ferguson said.
