Rays: Feeling Springsteen; intro tunes

Racing in the Street and Babe Shadow.

A-listed B-streeters

Rays manager Joe Maddon is excited for the Sunday and Monday pregame performances of the B-Street Band, the long-running Bruce Springsteen, right, tribute group led by his childhood buddy Willie Forte. Maddon’s favorites of their covers? “I like their Jungleland, and their Spirit in the Night is pretty good,” he said. Though it has been suggested, Maddon will not be singing. “I can’t,” he said. “Plus, it’s pregame, so that’s another reason why I can’t.”

Tuned up

Spring training is for experimenting in lots of ways. On Friday the Rays took the field to Bang a Gong (Get It On), which manager Joe Maddon heard on his iPad last week and wanted to try as an intro song.

This is useless without knowing if it was T. Rex or The Power Station.

Why would it be anyone other than T. Rex? What's a Power Station?
