It’s not just the manager: the Rays get geeky

May 24, 2012, 6:05 PM EDT

The Rays are traveling in style today. And that style is vintage 1980’s nerd.

Paying tribute to FOX’s Ken Rosenthal and his bow ties for charities, the Rays have put their Sunday worst for their trip up to Boston in advance of their series against the Red Sox. Along with getting dressed up, they’ll be making a donation to the charities supported by Rosenthal this year.

Here’s a couple of our favorite pics off Twitter. Marc Topkin has a few more.

    Rays, you’re making it really hard to stay loyal to my Twins.

    Bowties are cool.
    Now I wonder if someone is carrying a sonic screwdriver.

    All I can see right now is Elliot Johnson waddling around like Frankenstein, like Kramer did in the one episode of Seinfeld. Good luck getting those off.

    Seems like they’d be a fun team to play for.
