GDT: Fauxback, Part Deux

"We're athletes"

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.

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.

Go Rays!
