Post Season Meetings None

The Citrus Series is the name given to the interleague series between the Florida Marlins and Tampa Bay Rays in Major League Baseball. The Marlins broke into the league in 1993,[5] while the Rays had their first season in 1998.[6] The first meeting between the two teams did not take place place until June 22, 1998 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida during the Rays' inaugural season.

When the Marlins are the home team, games are played at Sun Life Stadium (as it is currently named), though it has been known by several names in its existence. Also note, that from 1998 until 2007, the Rays were known as the Devil Rays, and are noted in this article as such when appropriate, for the results of games played in those years.

Currently, because the Marlins play in the National League, and the Rays in the American League, the only possible postseason matchup the teams can have is in the World Series, though this has never happened. Both teams have had appearances in the Fall Classic, however. The Marlins have won both of their World Series appearances in 1997 and 2003, while the Rays have lost their only appearance in 2008. Interestingly, these are the only three postseason appearances between the two teams, however they have never appeared in the same postseason.[citation needed]
