Rays First Pitch Count: Tampa Mayor 4, St. Pete Mayors 1

Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn will throw out the Rays' first pitch Thursday night against the Red Sox...the fourth time he's been invited for the honor at the Trop in his four years in office.

For those of you keeping score at home, that's three more than the mayors of St. Pete have thrown in the past five years (Foster: 0; Kriseman: 1), even though the Trop is located in St. Pete.

Kriseman will probably add to his total later this year, but the news should be enough to reignite the Tampa "flirting" rumors and light up the sportstalk airwaves for a couple of days.


  1. But it is a lot easier to email the St. Pete mayor than the Tampa mayor!

  2. Pot, consider yourself stirred.
