The Rays Tank: Fuld to Oakland, Uniforms to Community

J. Meric

Sam Fuld signs with the A's, Rays and Majestic Athletic team up to provide uniforms to local T-ball teams.

It looks like #TheLegendOfSamFuld has moved on to the green and gold. Per Ken Rosenthal, Fuld has reportedly agreed to a minor-league deal with the Oakland Athletics.

For those of you who want to reminisce, you can revisit Ian’s article, "Remembering Sam Fuld."

The Rays are constantly involved within the Tampa Bay community, and yesterday they announced that they are teaming up with Majestic Athletic to provide nearly 5,500 jerseys and baseball caps for local T-ball players and coaches. There will be eighteen different Rays color combinations for the jerseys and they will be distributed across six counties and over 70 leagues, per Marc Topkin.
