"This partnership allows us to say thank you to our satisfied members who found love and happiness on eHarmony while also promoting eHarmony to prospective new members. The Rays have always been a very lovable organization when it comes to putting their fans first, and we believe that our strong relationship with our success couples 'marries' nicely with the Rays' approach to engaging and spotlighting their fan base."

"We are pleased to have eHarmony on board as our newest corporate partner and are excited about the promotional value this agreement brings to our in-game experience," said Rays Senior Vice President/Chief Sales Officer, Mark Fernandez.

At the Rays Home Opener on April 8, Judi and Jeff will be the first eHarmony success story to be featured live on the eHarmony Cam.
