The Gulf Coast Rays are a minor league baseball team in Port Charlotte, Florida managed by Paul Hoover. They are a Rookie-level team in the Gulf Coast League that will begin play as an affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays in June 2009. The team will play most of their home games on field five of the Charlotte Sports Park complex, and will also play select games in the stadium. Their roster will compose mostly of international free agents from the Dominican Republic and Venezuela and draft picks from the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft.
