November 23rd in Rays History

One former Rays player was born on this date; Dave McCarty (1969)

2007 - Former Rays pitcher, Joe Kennedy, suddenly dies at the age of 28 due to an un-diagnosed heart condition. Kennedy began his major league career with the Rays in 2001 and spent the bulk of his career in Tampa Bay. He also split time with the Rockies, Athletic, Blue Jays, and Diamondbacks.

Rays Trivia

Some fun with walk-off numbers,

The Rays have walked off 139 times in franchise history

Evan Longoria is responsible for seven of these, the most in team history.

However, the bulk of his walk-offs happened in the 9th inning.

So, who owns the most walk-off plate appearances in extra inning ballgames in team history?

Hint; it isn’t Evan Longoria, Carl Crawford, or B.J. Upton
