April 25-26 vs. Angels

Rays fans missed Albert Pujols last June when the slugging first baseman was injured during the Cardinals' interleague trip to the Trop. Maybe better luck this time when Pujols and the Angels, his new team, make their lone trip to St. Petersburg.

June 12-15 vs. Mets

Long-time fans of baseball in the Tampa Bay area should enjoy the return of the Mets, who trained in St. Petersburg from 1962 until 1997, when they vacated Al Lang Stadium to make room for the Devil Rays.

June 28-July 1 vs. Tigers

Not only can you get a Zim Bear and a James Shields bobblehead during the series, you can see what all the fuss is about Tigers new first baseman Prince Fielder. Also, with a four-game series, there's a good chance reigning AL MVP and Cy Young winner Justin Verlander will pitch.
