What Would a Potential Rays Old Timer's Day Roster Look Like?

The Beckles & Recher Show is running with the idea that the Tampa Bay Rays should hold an Old Timer's Day in honor of the team's 25th anniversary in 2023, and continue the tradition thereafter. It's certainly an idea the team has to consider, as we can't think of any negatives, and the team has been in existence long enough to field more than one team, as the guys discussed on Tuesday's show.

Based on a very simple list that Jay provided, the guys held a draft, and these are the teams we put together. Note, no current players, such as Evan Longoria or Wil Myers, nor managers, such as Rocco Baldelli (lone exception being Kevin Cash), are eligible to participate, considering their roles on other teams.

Who would you like to see at a Rays' Old-Timer's Day? Let us know in the comments on Twitter and Facebook!
