Players to wear camouflage for trip to Baltimore

ST. PETERSBURG -- Following Thursday night's game against the Red Sox, the Rays will leave for a six-game road trip to Baltimore and Toronto. The trip will be the team's second themed road trip of the season.

This time around, Rays players will wear camouflage.

"We have so much of that in our clubhouse," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "They're all into this stuff. We have so many hunters. Plus, camo's in right now. Camo actually is in in a fashion sense. It's coming from all different directions. The only part that's uncool in a sense is it's a night trip, so nobody gets to see it. But then again, if you're wearing camo, they wouldn't see anyway."

The club wore letterman jackets from Texas to Boston on the first road trip this year. This is the 25th themed road trip instituted by Maddon since he started the tradition in 2008.
