Rays Pay Tribute to Joe Maddon With Touching Video

For the first time since he left Tampa Bay, Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon returned to Tropicana Field on Tuesday, and he got quite a reception. 

The Cubs, in the thick of a playoff race, drew a ton of fans to the ballpark, but Rays fans showed their appreciation for Maddon as well as the team played a tribute video during the game: 

The video hits on all of Maddon's greatest hits, from his practice of inviting animals into the clubhouse to his charitable endeavors to his spectacular hairstyles. 

After the heartfelt tribute, the Cubs ended up keeping the "good vibrations" going as they beat the Rays 2-1 behind a strong effort from Mike Montgomery.
