ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) _ The Tampa Bay Devil Rays are gone.
The perennial last-place team officially shortened its nickname
to simply ``Rays'' during a celebration Thursday night.
New team colors and uniforms also were unveiled during a fashion
show featuring current players and former Tampa Bay stars Wade
Boggs and Fred McGriff as models.
Navy blue and light blue have replaced green and black as the
primary colors. The club's new logo -- as well as the home and road
uniforms for next season -- feature the word ``Rays'' in navy blue
lettering with a light blue shadow.
