With Irma gone, Rays to return to Trop Friday

From ESPN - September 13, 2017

NEW YORK -- The Tampa Bay Rays will return home to Florida following Hurricane Irma for what is now a truncated five-game homestand against the Boston Red Sox and the Chicago Cubs.

A three-game series against the New York Yankees was moved from Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg to New York's Citi Field, the home of the Mets. The Rays split the first two games of the series entering Wednesday's finale.

The Rays and Mets had a lighthearted exchange on Twitter about Tampa Bay's final "home" game at Citi Field on Wednesday.

Hello @mets, can you please send fresh towels and let us know what time is checkout?
