Evan Longoria, the newly-acquired third baseman of the San Francisco Giants, offered up a classy gesture on his way out of his first big-league town. The thre-time All-Star took out a full page ad in The Tampa Bay Times, thanking the Rays fan base.

"It's hard to think of a significant sporting moment in my life that didn't happen in a Tampa Bay Rays uniform," Longoria began.

Check out the full letter below:

The Giants landed Longoria on Wednesday in a deal which sent Denard Span to Tampa Bay, along with prospects Christian Arroyo, Matt Krook and Stephen Woods.
