DEVIL RAYS IT IS: NAME WINS OUT OVER MANTA RAYS IN TAMPA
Published April 3, 1995
The Devil Rays placed ads in local papers this morning informing fans that the team's name would, in fact, be the Devil Rays. Team Managing General Partner Vince Naimoli originally named the team Devil Rays, but allowed fans to choose between that and Manta Rays after initial reaction to the name was negative (Joe Henderson, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 4/3).
