Rays Fans Taking Notice of Team's Advances

The Rays are beginning to see some benefits of playing to win rather than worrying so much about profits, player options and arbitration deadlines that have limited front office decisions in previous seasons.

With the team continuing to hold its tenacious lead in the American League eastern division, attendance has climbed 33 percent and merchandise sales are up 75 percent, according to The St. Petersburg Times.
