Rays Fans Are Invited to Baseball Forever Night at Tropicana, Summer of Events

ST. PETERSBURG, FL (June 24, 2016) - The Baseball Forever campaign is hosting a Baseball Forever Night at the Trop, Friday, August 19, at 7:10 p.m when the Tampa Bay Rays play the Texas Rangers. The goal is to sell out the Trop to show the Tampa Bay Rays just how much the community supports the team.

"This is an opportunity for residents and visitors who support Baseball Forever' in St. Petersburg to demonstrate that support by cheering on our hometown Rays," said Mayor Rick Kriseman.

"Being a member of Baseball Forever St. Pete is a great honor," said campaign member Brooks Wallington. "Our goal is to show the Rays we are serious about baseball staying here for good, but we need the support from the whole community to show that. Throughout the next couple of months we hope to see that support in numbers at our events, watch parties and games."

Lower level tickets are available for $25, which includes a Rays cap, and upper level tickets are available for $10. Tickets are available online at www.RaysBaseball.com/BaseballForever. Group tickets, for parties of 10 or more, can be purchased directly from the Rays by emailing Josh Gallo at jgallo@raysbaseball.com. Group tickets are fee-free and include a welcome message on the scoreboard.
