This is an email from 'oustnaimoli.com' Message: Thanks to everyone for registering for the OustNaimoli.com site and supporting our efforts in getting Vince Naimoli to step down as owner of the Devil Rays! The petition is still growing strong and our collective efforts have begun to make waves in the Tampa/St. Pete communities. However, we feel that we can still take it to the next level! OustNaimoli.com is in the process of organizing a fan walkout during the
May 7th game against the TwinsMay 28th game against the Mariners. We would appreciate your help to spread the word to the masses.
