The Tampa Bay metropolitan area in Florida had been trying for more than three decades to land a Major League Baseball franchise when the city finally landed the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 1998. In what became the last major expansion of Major League Baseball for the 20th century, and the last expansion to date, the team joined the American League at the same time that the Arizona Diamondbacks began playing in the NL West.
Since arriving in Tampa, the franchise has gone on to win two AL East division titles, two Wild Card berths, and a single American League pennant during the 2008 season. Interestingly, the team's only World Series appearance came after landing the Wild Card spot in that year's post-season. 2008 was also the year that the team modified its name, becoming the current Tampa Bay Rays. Though they have yet to bring home a World Series title, the team has a loyal fan base throughout Tampa and other parts of Florida, all of whom are looking for the best game day merchandise.
