Tampa Bay Rays Players Are Huge Nerds, Apparently

The Tampa Bay Rays are flying to take on the Boston Red Sox on Thursday, but they'll be dressed a little differently than normal. The Rays are apparently dressing up as "nerds" or like broadcaster Ken Rosenthal. Rosenthal has been wearing bowties for charity, through BowTieCause.org, and the Rays have decided to join the cause, donating $3,000 with 30 players/people wearing bowties at $100 each.

"I'm really flattered. Honored is not too strong a word," Rosenthal told the Tampa Bay Times. "The other night in Philly, the Phanatic came on camera with me wearing a bow tie. Joe talked about that, mentioned the thing with the Rays and some other stuff and said, 'You're like a Kardashian.' "
