ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. Got an inspirational quote? The Tampa Bay Rays want to hear from you.
Deep quotes are nothing new on the Rays clubhouse lineup card they usually come from manager Joe Maddon but the club is doing some crowdsourcing to find fresh thought-provoking material.
On Monday, Maddon tweeted that he will select an inspirational quote each day sent to him via Twitter. The winning quote will be posted in the clubhouse, and the winner will receive a Friend-O-Rays T-shirt as a prize.
Tweet me your most inspirational quote and I will select one every day, post in the clubhouse and send the winner a Friend-O-Rays t-shirt. Joe Maddon (@RaysJoeMaddon) June 10, 2013
