Longoria eager to play in his hometown
SEATTLE -- Evan Longoria hails from the Anaheim area, so heading to his hometown to play the Angels is always a big event for the slugger.

Longoria has been looking forward to the next leg of the Rays' road trip.

"Having the whole family there is cool," said Longoria. "It's always fun to see who shows up and who comes out of the woodwork to say hello. It's always fun to see old friends and have them come out to the game. [Angel] Stadium, you couldn't ask for a better venue. It's a great place to play, and I always like going there for that."

Of course, Longoria's performance at Angel Stadium suggests there is no place like home. In 13 games there, he has a .426 average with four home runs and 13 RBIs.
