Tampa Bay Rays 162 Landing Exhibit

For many teams it takes many decades to build a long, rich history. The Tampa Bay Rays got off to a little bit of a slow start after their inauguration, but have been on a tear over the past 5 years. Just as important in building a history is documenting it, and the Rays organization did a great job of recording the excitement of Game 162 with their new 162 Landing exhibit. Below we have documented the exhibit in pictures. If you are interested in checking it out at Tropicana Field, it is located in left field behind the visitors bullpen.
