November 30th in Rays History!

Hank Blalock was born on this date in 1980. The two-time all-star spent the last 26 games of his major league career with the Rays during the 2010 season after spending the prior eight years with the Rangers. Blalock's time with Tampa Bay was short, but he provided a decent bat off the bench for the team as he slashed .254/.319/.349 with one home run.
