Tampa Bay Rays: Aussie Sunshine
The Tampa Bay Rays have become a popular team for fans of baseball in Australia. So far two Aussies have played Major League Baseball with Tampa Bay. Damian Moss was the first in 2004 back when Tampa Bay went by the name Devil Rays. The second was flamethrower Grant Balfour who established himself as a colourful identity on the team from 2007 to 2010. 2008 and 2010 were stellar seasons for him, and in 2008 Balfour played in a Baseball World Series with the Rays, making him only the second Aussie to do so.
