The Rays are sporting a new iteration of their "fauxback" jerseys in Chicago, which will be wearing throwbacks to celebrate Wrigley Field's 100th anniversary this afternoon.
ICYMI: #Rays will wear new retro road jerseys on Sunday vs the @Cubs. Now you can get yours: http://t.co/0IIjizRCxG pic.twitter.com/Be3ipyUhP3— Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) August 9, 2014
The new jerseys follow the same "Padres" throwback model already used by the Rays, and were personally designed by principal owner Stu Sternberg.
As the Rays go for the sweep, Dewayne Staats will be singing the 7th inning stretch and calling play by play the same inning for the Cubs. The legendary Staats was a broadcaster for the Cubs in the 80's.
