WSJ: Tampa Bay Rays Get Political


1 of 5 stars
What’s this?

I intend to root for the Rays in the World Series, but I think it’s highly inappropriate for them — or any athletes, for that matter — to go on the stump for any political candidate, Republican, Democrat or what have you. Especially when the team is from a swing state. Tampa Bay fans of every political persuasion have the right to root for their team without the messy encumbrances of politics.
