November 30th in Rays History

One Rays player was born; Mikie Mahtook (1989)

2007 - The Rays signed veteran reliever Troy Percival. He would spend most of the next two seasons either suffering on the disabled or list or making Rays fans suffer as he narrowly finished close games. He pitched in 64 games for the Rays - finished 48 of them - as he racked up 34 saves, but also had a 4.89 ERA and a 6.07 FIP.

Rays Trivia

Fun with pinch-runners in franchise history.

After the 2016 season, the Rays have used a total of 102 players to pinch-run.

Sean Rodriguez has been used the most - 25 times - with the closest active Rays player being Tim Beckham, who has been used 8 times.

Anyway, there have only been four players to have entered a game as a pinch-runner, then go on to homer later in the game.

Name the four.
