New Beginnings – Under the Orange Roof

Long-time Tampa Bay Rays reporter and radio host Steve Carney welcomes you to his new venture, and explains how this podcast and everything else that will be associated with it came into existence.

Rays Radio play-by-play broadcaster Andy Freed then joins Steve to talk about all the beginnings he has seen with the team, from the beginning of their relevance in the American League East to starting over in 2021 with Blake Snell and Charlie Morton.
