St Pete Celebrates the Rays
It's no April Fool's day joke!! The Tampa Bay Rays season home opening game at Tropicana Field against the Baltimore Orioles is sold out. It's the sixth consecutive season the Rays have sold out the home opener.
All fans will receive a season schedule magnet.
David Price will be starting pitcher for the Rays against the Orioles pitcher Jeremy Guthrie. David Price, last season's AL Cy Young Award runner-up , will become the 13th pitcher in league history to make starts on opening day, in an All-Star game and during the postseason by the age of 25. (Atlanta's Tom Glavine was the last to do it & that was 20 years ago.) Despite having one of the lowest payrolls in the major leagues, the Rays have won 2 of the last 3 divisonal titles.
