Akinori Iwamura says goodbye to Tampa Bay


Iwamura, who was traded from the Rays to the Pirates last month, took out a full-page ad in Sunday’s edition of the St.
Petersburg Times, thanking the fans of Tampa Bay:

“I hope you’ll remember me with good thoughts for my efforts on the
field and even for my “Rayhawk” haircut during our run to the World
Series,” he says.

That’s just a small part of his classy goodbye. For those interested, check it out in-full here.
