ARLINGTON, Tex. (WFLA) – The Tampa Bay Rays arrived a little bit later than planned but it was a thrill for the club to hit the field for its World Series workout day, twelve years after the franchise last had a shot to win it all.
The Rays will take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in game one on Tuesday with both clubs coming off respective seven-game league championship series.
Rays pitcher Tyler Glasnow will start game one in what calls a “nostalgic” step in his career.
Glasnow grew up in southern California, attending Dodger games as a kid, relating those experiences to his impressions of all the ballparks around the major leagues when he became a player.
The Dodgers will counter with one of the greats, Clayton Kershaw, who will appear his third World Series in four years.
