Come appreciate Dan Johnson, the man, the myth, the great pumpkin

As another week comes to a close, we are now just three more Fridays (plus a weekend) away from spring training commencing.

To commemorate the date, here are all of the players to have worn the number 24 for the Rays.

Mike Kelly (1998), Ryan Rupe (1999-2002), George Lumbard (2003), Tino Martinez (2004), Eric Munson (2005), Charles Johnson (2005), Kevin Witt (2006), Sean Burroughs (2006), Kurt Birkins (2008), Justin Ruggiano (2008), Dan Johnson (2008, 2010-2011), Manny Ramirez (2011), Rich Thompson (2012), Ryan Hanigan (2014), Grady Sizemore (2015), Hank Conger (2016), and Alexei Ramirez (2016).

Some memorable moments to come for these players wearing these uniforms

Then Manny Ramirez had to go and be depressing, singling once in his 17 regular season plate appearances with the Rays
