After a disappointing 6-1 loss to the Marlins' wives last season at Tropicana Field, the Lady Rays softball squad rededicated themselves in the offseason.
Extensive infield work. Mandatory batting practice sessions. iPad-driven film study.
The results spoke for themselves during the Citrus Cup charity softball game Saturdayat Marlins Park, as Tampa Bay's significant others notched a 14-2 victory over the Lady Marlins.
Katelyn Davis (wife of Rays pitcher Wade) earned Defensive MVP honors, repeatedly making diving plays at shortstop. Stephanie Cursi (wife of bullpen catcher Scott) hit the game's only home run and was named Offensive MVP.
