ST. PETERSBURG -- Kevin Cash became the fifth manager in Rays history on Dec. 5. New to the job, he is hardly a stranger to Rays fans, or to baseball fans in the area.
Cash played in the 1989 Little League World Series for Tampa Northside, graduated from Gaither High School in 1997 and played three seasons as an infielder for Florida State University, including a trip to the 1999 College World Series.
