Tampa Bay Rays

Brief History

The Rookie

Tampa made several attempts to acquire a Major League team throughout the 1980's and the 1990's. The San Francisco Giants were almost sold and moved to Tampa in 1992, but they ended up being sold to a group in San Francisco that kept them there. Finally, in 1995 Tampa was granted an expansion team. The Tampa Bay Devil Rays began play in 1998.

The Rookie, a 2002 movie, was centered around the true story of Devil Rays player Jim Morris

Morris, a 35 year old high school baseball coach could pitch a ball at 98 mph repeatedly. He tried out for the majors and signed with the Devil Rays.
