ARLINGTON -- The Rays will wear letterman jackets on the charter from Texas to Boston after Wednesday afternoon's game against the Rangers, their first themed dress road trip of 2013 and the 23rd such trip since Joe Maddon introduced them to the team in 2008.

The jackets feature the Rays' yellow sunburst over the left breast.

Equipment manager Chris Westmoreland was asked if everybody had earned their letter.

"I think everybody's earned it at this point, but it can be taken away," he said.

Turned out, the timing for breaking out the jackets is impeccable. According to the weather forecast, Boston temperatures will range from 38 to 63 degrees during the Rays' four-game series that runs from Friday through Monday.
