Happy birthdays to two former Rays, Damion Easley (1967) and Roberto Hernandez (1964)
1997 – The Rays make their first ever trade as they acquire Mike Kelly from the Cincinnati Reds for a player to be named. The player turned out to be Dmitri Young who went on to have a solid career for the next decade and half. Kelly meanwhile would be out of the majors after 1999.
