Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He has that kind of personality where he's just genuinely a nice guy. We'd go out to lunch and people would come up and say, 'Hey, you guys play for the Rays.' Quinton (McCracken) takes a genuine interest in people, so he'd ask their name and have these long conversations with them. People see that about him and they really like him." - Tampa Bays Devil Rays Centerfielder Randy Winn

Quinton McCracken was selected by the Colorado Rockies in their inaugural draft in 1992 , in the 25th round, and , by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in their 1997 expansion draft, their second pick in history. Do you know which player the Rays picked ahead of McCracken? [ Answer ]

On March 31, 1998 , Quinton McCracken, in the bottom of the first inning, grounded out on a 1-1 pitch, becoming the first Tampa Bay Devil Rays batter in their first regular season game. In the top of the first McCracken had already become their first center fielder in Rays history, joining Miguel Cairo (2B), Wade Boggs (3B), Fred McGriff (1B), Mike Kelly (LF), Paul Sorrento (DH), John Flaherty (C), Dave Martinez (RF), Kevin Stocker (SS) and Wilson Alvarez (P).

During that same game, McCracken became the first Rays player to ground into a double play (3rd inning) and the first Rays player to ever score a run - singling in the 6th inning to reach base, then being driven in courtesy of a Wade Boggs home run (the first in team history).

Did you know that two baserunners get credit for the first stolen base by a player in a Rays uniform? McCracken (stole third off Sean Runyan ) and Miguel Cairo (stole second off Runyan ) were part of that famous first / history making double steal on April 1, 1998 .
