JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Sunday was "Chop at the Trop" day at Tropicana Field. Florida State head football coach Jimbo Fisher threw out the first pitch prior to the start of the Rays game against the Baltimore Orioles.

The inaugural "Chop at the Trop" featured FSU baseball coach Mike Martin throwing the honorary first pitch in 2013, while legendary football coach Bobby Bowden made a pregame appearance and was welcomed by a raucous crowd in 2014.

Rays first-year manager Kevin Cash played baseball for the Seminoles from 1997-1999.
