ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The Rays have sold out their home opener – which has limited seating due to the ongoing pandemic.
Tampa Bay will take on the New York Yankees Friday at Tropicana Field. First pitch is at 3:10 p.m.
"This marks the 15th consecutive season the Rays have sold out their home opener, excluding the 2020 season which was played without fans," the MLB franchise wrote in a news release.
Fans can watch the game locally on Bally Sports Sun or listen on WDAE 95.3 FM/620 AM. The team says more than 150 games this season will also be broadcast in Spanish on Genesis 680 AM/92.9 FM and Caliente 96.1 FM/101.5 FM/1470 AM.
Even though the Rays home opener is sold out, tickets can still be purchased for the remaining two games versus the Yankees and for the upcoming four-game series against the Texas Rangers. Fans will be seated in socially distanced pods.
Single-game tickets for all Tampa Bay home games through May 2 are on sale now, as are Rays Season Memberships. Click here for more information.
