November 14th in Rays History:

2012 – David Price becomes the first, and so far only player in franchise history to be award the American League Cy Young award after an incredible season he which he went 20-5 with a 2.56 ERA and a 3.05 FIP over 31 starts and 211 innings pitched.

2014 – 2011 Rookie of the Year winner and former Rays top prospect, Jeremy Hellickson is traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks for Justin Williams and Andrew Velazquez.

Trivia:

The Rays have had 36 instances in which the bases were loaded when they walked off to victory. The Yankees have fallen victim to this the most of any opposing team, losing five of these games and August tends to be the hotspot for these occurrences, having happened 11 times during those dog days.

Anyway, the question which I pose is, who was the first player to give the Rays a walk-off victory with the bases loaded and who was the last Rays player to do it?
