Rays' first themed road trip is ... letterman jackets

For most teams, the season doesn't begin until they have their first home game, with cheering fans and Opening Day festivities. The Rays are not most teams, and for them, the unofficial start to the season is the first costumed road trip.

They've become well known for such behavior throughout the yearsand these letterman jackets are surely not the last costumes, nor the most outlandish that we'll see this year.

Maddon tweeted out the above photo, adding, "I was not totally offended by the weather here today but really glad for the letterman jackets."

We're glad for them too, Joe. Never change.
