Rays Triple Play: A day for military veterans

By
Published:

The U.S. Special Operations Command Parachute Team will deliver the first pitch baseball before the Tampa Bay Rays' Friday spring training game against the Baltimore Orioles at Charlotte Sports Park.

The Rays invited 300 area veterans to the game. Special discounts for active and retired military personnel can purchase up to four half-priced general admission seats on game day.

Quote of the day

"I think that seeing the manager turn his hat around and get nose-to-nose with the umpire is part of it, too, as far as the pastime goes."

Radio days

The Rays radio network will broadcast 12 games this spring, beginning with Saturday's game against the Pirates at Bradenton. They will carry all 12 weekend games plus the night games against the Twins (March 18 and March 20) and the Orioles (March 26 and 27). They will carry the March 15 game against the Blue Jays, which is part of a split-squad Saturday.
