Rays Final night of '11 still resonates with Rays

Quote:
Luke Scott called the final night of the 2011 season "the greatest night in baseball history," and that seems to be the general sentiment among fans and players alike.

Rays fans won't soon forget that night at Tropicana Field, though the crowd of 29,518 has swelled considerably since. The Rays trailed the Yankees, 7-0, in the eighth before tying the game with two outs in the ninth when Dan Johnson hit a game-tying homer to send the game into extra innings. During that same period, the Orioles came back to defeat the Red Sox in Baltimore. Evan Longoria then hit a walk-off home run in the 12th inning to propel the Rays into the playoffs as the American League Wild Card winner.

The season ended on a Wednesday, which turned out to be a brilliant move by Major League Baseball. Instead of having to fight the NFL for America's attention, MLB had the spotlight.
