ST. PETERSBURG, FL—The Rays Fortune Favors the Bald T-shirts will go on sale tomorrow at the Rays stores at Tropicana Field and Charlotte Sports Park, the Rays Tampa Store at 400 N. Tampa Street, All Children’s Hospital and the Moffitt Cancer Center.

The shirts will sell for $15.99 with all proceeds benefitting the Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Moffitt Cancer Center and All Children’s Hospital.

The shirts were first worn by the Rays on March 15 when 71 players, coaches and front office staff shaved their heads

to pay tribute to children battling cancer as part of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s  annual “Cut for the Cure”

The “Fortune Favors the Bald” slogan is a twist on Rays manager Joe Maddon’s “Fortune Favors the Bold” sign that hangs in the Rays clubhouse.
