Rays embark on “accidental preppie” road trip

After defeating the Tigers 3-1 this afternoon, the Rays prepared to take a short four-day trip to Houston to play the Astros. Before departing, the Joe Maddon-led squad slipped into some themed attire, apparently dubbed “accidental preppie”.

Dave Haller, the director of communications for the Rays, tweeted a bunch of pictures of Rays in their attire. Here’s an album, courtesy /r/baseball:

As one of the more analytical managers in baseball, Maddon has certainly made his mark in that regard, but let’s not forget that he has brought a penguin into the clubhouse and hired a DJ recently as well, both arguably as important as in-game tactics. (I kid, I kid.)
