ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. The Tampa Bay Rays have gone preppie. Well, sort of. The latest themed road trip for manager Joe Maddons team is titled, Accidental Preppie, which certainly fits his clubhouses anti-dress code culture. The Rays left Sunday for a four-game series against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park dressed to impress in an unintentional way. Does the theme fit the location? Maddon thinks so. Let him explain. Houston has got a preppie culture a little bit, he said. Im really hoping for things that just dont match. On top of just the actual flights, Im encouraging wearing shorts to and from the ballpark. It could be warm there. Again, we have the anti-dress code around here. Just wear your shorts, be comfortable. J-mo has a tremendous look. pic.twitter.comhX6sZ1Gwkt Joe Maddon (@RaysJoeMaddon) June 30, 2013 Let the Accidental Preppie Trip to Houston begin! pic.twitter.comiDYvFacpiv Joe Maddon (@RaysJoeMaddon) June 30, 2013 Sometimes interviews and dress-up time overlap on these themed trips.
