2012 Tampa Bay Rays Fan Fest at the Trop!

In Florida its Bicycles and Baseball.  This time of year you can mix both as spring training kicks into gear all over Florida. A great activity to ride your bike and catch a good professional game of baseball. We are proud to have a top winning team right here in Tampa and today they kicked off spring training as only the Tampa Bay Rays can!

Check out our pictures from today at the bottom of this page…

From 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday, February 18th,  at Tropicana Field, baseball season in St. Petersburg unofficially kicked off with the 2012 Rays Fan Fest.

The day-long event was for diehard fans and families.

Activities included: coaching clinics, yard sale, kids run the bases, panel discussion, clubhouse tours, batting cages, speed pitch and even wiffle ball home run derby.

 This was a whole family event; there was plenty of activities for everyone. You could have had a player call your friend or family member, play interactive games, had a Thanksmas lunch with Joe Maddon, get baseball memorabilia at the yard sale, meet Rays players, get their autographs, visit the Rays Museum and Batters Hall of Fame, and much more.
