Tampa Bay Rays Manager Joe Maddon Buys Beer for Fans Because He’s Just That Awesome
Joe Maddon continues to find innovative ways to get his team and its fans pumped up.
The Tampa Bay Rays manager bought beer for anyone who wore team gear to a Long Beach, California bar on Tuesday while his squad was in town to take on the Los Angeles Angels.
Everybody wearing Rays gear tonight at Legends on 2nd Street in Long Beach gets a free beer. It’s our win or weep party.

We don’t know how much Maddon’s promotion worked, but the Rays did beat the Angels, 7-1, putting a halt to a five-game losing streak and keeping the team squarely in the middle of the wild card race.
Props to Maddon for finding a cool way to keep his fans excited and let’s give him another hand for reaching out on Twitter. This guy is just one cool manager.
