DEVIL RAYS HAVE FALLEN BEHIND DIAMONDBACKS AS TEAMS EXPAND
Published July 12, 1995
Devil Rays Managing General Partner Vince Naimoli said the team is building the basis for a solid organization, but he admits the team is behind on its original schedule, according to the ST. PETERSBURG TIMES. The Devil Rays have fallen behind the Diamondbacks who already have a GM, a scouting director, a top marketing official and about twice the staff of the Rays. Naimoli: "I would say Arizona is definitely ahead of us right now from those aspects. We have the advantage of having the better part of the stadium completed. I think we can bring all the human elements into focus fairly quickly" (Marc Topkin, ST. PETE TIMES, 7/11).
