The Rays are looking for a power-hitting rightfielder, a strike-throwing reliever and a high-impact belly-wiggler.

In their efforts to hire a new performer to take over for fired Kelly Frank as their Raymond mascot, the Rays have posted an online listing seeking experienced applicants.

Among the requirements for the position — technically Mascot/Marketing & Game Entertainment Coordinator — are the ability to pump up the crowd, come up with skit ideas, create costumes and further market the character.

And this:

"Must be able to take on the brand and personality of Raymond, including but not limited to the signature 'belly-wiggle,' energetic dance moves, quirky antics and the love for kids, families and the Rays."

The ad doesn't list a salary. Applications are due Dec. 31. To see the ad, go to links. tampabay.com.
