Daniel Russell

Tampa Bay Staff Writer

Danny is a graduate student in accounting at Florida State University. After graduation he will pursue a CPA license before moving to Boston in 2013. Daniel is lucky enough to barely remember a world without the Rays. Growing up on the east coast, the Trop was always a two hour drive away. He is the grandson of a depression era pitcher, and the son of a south sider from Chicago.
