ST. PETERSBURG, Florida - Ferg's has always been "THE" place to root on the Rays, but Wednesday night, the sports bar located directly across the street from Tropicana Field hopes to set a new record for their largest crowd for an away game.
Thousands of fans are expected out for the establishment's massive watch party to root on the Rays in their one game wildcard playoff against Cleveland to advance on to the American League Division Series.
Ferg's traditionally does best on nights when the team is at home, but with tonight's do or die potential final game of the season, fans will be fired up hoping for a win in Cleveland.
Mayor Bill Foster is among those expected out for tonight's watch party, according to a Ferg's spokesperson. Excitement about the record breaking event has been growing on social media, with some fans showing up hours before Wednesday's 8:00 p.m. game.
It's impossible to tell exactly how many people will show up for the watch party, but staff members at Ferg's have been stocking up beer coolers all day and say they'll be ready for one of their largest crowds yet.
