In honor of the 70th anniversary of MacDill Air Force Base, Joe Maddon announced today that he will wear “MacDill” across the back of his jersey for the next three days. It must have seemed like a natural gesture given that Maddon already wears the number 70.

Earlier this month, Maddon visited MacDill Air Force base with several other members of the Rays family to help celebrate MacDill’s anniversary. And this Saturday, the Rays will host a birthday celebration at Tropicana Field.
Best part is, we can still call him JoeMa.
