The Tampa Bay Rays wasted no time in trying to fill some seats for the three-game set against their American League East rivals the New York Yankees.

According to the team's Twitter feed, they invited new Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis to throw out the ceremonial first pitch for tonight's game. The Rays have averaged 22,634 for their nine home games so far this season.

Revis agreed to a new six-year deal with the Bucs is worth $96 million, but reportedly none of it is guaranteed. Too bad he doesn't play baseball where most of the contracts are guaranteed.
