'Stocked up

Rays manager Joe Maddon took the lead in dressing up for the Woodstock-themed trip to Seattle, shown here with wife Jaye. Maddon stocked up on items he found online and at Tampa's Squaresville, then "it was really like throwing stuff up against the wall and seeing what would kind of stick — kind of like it was back in the day." He said the final look was inspired by Lovin' Spoonful singer John Sebastian — and not that different than Maddon once had. "I walked that path before, and it was kind of fun."

Feeling groovy

David Price and girlfriend Tiffany Smith were among the best dressed as well, with Afro wigs and Price sporting a full-length dashiki. Price, admitting Smith did all the work, summed up their look in one word: "Groovy." He said his father, Bonnie, saw a photo and said he could have sent him the dashiki he wore back in the day.
