ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays are bringing Don Zimmer back for the 2013 season as a senior adviser, marking his 10th with the Rays and 65th season in professional baseball.

Zimmer, 81, said in a statement Thursday that he couldn't be happier and that the Rays always have been great to him.

The Rays are one of 13 major league teams Zimmer has worn a uniform, and 2013 will help him match the 10 seasons he spent with the New York Yankees for his longest tenure with one club.

The upcoming season will be Zimmer's 55th in the major leagues either as a player, coach or manager. He currently works with the Rays as a coach and adviser in spring training and at pregame practices for all home games.
