Going beyond just coverage of games, Sun Sports’ partnership with the Rays provides fans with more opportunities to get to know the team and its players.  Nine half-hour HD episodes of Sun Sports popular Inside the Rays are planned this year and will include player profiles, with rare behind-the-scenes stories and interviews, plus episodes offering inside access to other aspects of the team and its operations – all designed to bring the fans closer to their favorite team.

Complementing the network’s live television coverage of games will be unique content on the network’s website, www.foxsportsflorida.com, including reports, exclusive video, commentary and opportunities for fans to interact via both the website and social media at http://www.twitter.com/SunSportsRAYS and www.facebook.com/foxsportsfloridasunsports.
