It Ain’t Easy Being Green: 2001-2007
Entering a new millennium, the Devil Rays decided to clean up their uniforms. This was a change for the better.
The home white uniforms went through a short-sleeve and vest-styled jersey. The white jerseys took on the green accents. “Rays” was done in a green with blue trim script and green spoonhead. The vest years saw the manta ray return to the front. Both jerseys had a front player number.
The road grays also went through two different (back) short-sleeve jerseys and even a road vest. “Tampa Bay” was across the chest in green with blue trim. The script in a few seasons had the Y in “Bay” extend under the A. The spoonhead was in both a green and green-with-blue scheme. Like the home jerseys, a front player number was added.
