Team President named


"This is a new day for the Rays and with that comes a new approach to
every aspect of our business -- from the players to the fans, and from the
sponsors to our role in the community," Sternberg explained. "Matt not only
brings direct knowledge of the franchise, but also energy and a business-
focused approach that will guide this franchise into a new era."
    Silverman has spent the past two years working within the organization,
most recently as vice president of planning and development. In this capacity,
he was involved in all aspects of the organization's operations. Prior to
joining the Rays, Silverman worked closely with Sternberg to orchestrate the
purchase of a controlling interest in the franchise.
