On the first official weekly preview on Rays Colored Glasses, we go over what is in store for the Tampa Bay Rays!
The Tampa Bay Rays will play seven games this week despite their off day on Monday. The Rays will be on television three times this week. The first coming Wednesday against the Baltimore Orioles with Saturday against the O’s and Sunday against the Redsox also broadcasted. Wednesday will be on FS Sun, same for Saturday. Sunday, the game will be shown on NESN or the MLB At bat app or MLB dot com. MLB Network will also air the game throughout the day on tape delay, so set your DVR’s folks. Or, just follow us on Twitter @RaysColoGlasses.
On Tuesday, the Rays will not only take on the Baltimore Orioles but also take the field against the University of South Florida Bulls that night. That game will only be broadcasted on radio (WDAE) but can be heard on the MLB website or at bat app. This is a pretty cool event that can serve as a bit of community outreach, or at least just a cool story for the college ball players. This is not uncommon.
The Redsox play at least one local college team every year, and teams like the Tigers have done so as recently as two weeks ago. USF even played the Yankees in 2012. They last played in 2000 when the Bulls hosted the Rays. Shane McClanahan was playing for the Bulls a year ago before being draft in the first round of the 2018 MLB Draft by the Tampa Bay Rays.
