Rays — Matt Moore, Alex Colome, Xavier Cedeno, Ryan Webb, Dana Eveland, Jhan Marinez, Brad Boxberger

This Date in Team History!

In 2008, the Rays were also playing the Yankees, but this match up resulted in more fireworks than a traditional spring game as Shelly Duncan made a hard slide into Akinori Iwamura, placing Duncan in the unenviable position of having to face Johnny Gomes's wrath. This was a very important moment in Rays history as it showed a notable difference in the way the team carried itself.

That's the same number of homers clubbed by Evan Longoria in 2010.

One of those homers traveled a team season high, 451 feet.
