It was an exciting time for the Tampa Bay Rays but as hard as they tried, they just didn’t win. The Rays are an awesome team and played their hearts out. Everyone in Tampa thanks you and we look forward to next year. Congrats to the Phillies. It was fun watching the joy on your faces as you realized you won. Can’t help but feel bad for our guys but watch out for next year ~ we’ll be back.
Quoted from CNN:
“It was among the most bizarre endings in baseball history, a best-of-seven series turned into a best-of-3 1/2 showdown when play resumed in the bottom of the sixth inning tied at 2. Two Rays relievers warmed up to start, and there was a pinch-hitter before a single pitch. ”God Bless America” was sung rather than the national anthem and the seventh-inning stretch came quickly. Despite low TV ratings and minus the majors’ most glamorous teams, fans will always remember how this one wrapped up. And for the first time in a long while, kids saw a World Series champion crowned before bedtime. ”
