About the Ball: A rare baseball made to commemorate the "new" Tampa Bay Rays, specifically, the team's name and uniform change. Ownership dropped the "Devil" from "Devil Rays" and unveiled new logos, colors and uniforms at the Launch party November 8, 2007. These baseballs were apparently available for sale, and supposedly used in Spring Training games in 2008 - which would explain the game-used look to this specific ball. No word on whether or not the team used them in regular season home games at any point in 2008.
