ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.-Autograph passes for the 2015 Tampa Bay Rays Fan Fest presented by the Tampa Bay Times will go on sale this week. Rays Fan Fest is scheduled for Saturday, February 21 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Tropicana Field. For the 20th consecutive year, admission and parking for Rays Fan Fest are free.
Like last year, autographs at Fan Fest will only be available with the purchase of an autograph pass. These player-specific passes go on sale to the general public at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, February 4 exclusively on raysbaseball.com (subject to availability). Rays Members-Season Ticket Holders and Flex Pack buyers-will also receive information regarding pre-sale opportunities for these passes.
Autograph passes provide access to a player at a specific time frame during Fan Fest. A limited number of passes will be sold for each signing player and all sales must be completed online, exclusively on raysbaseball.com, in advance of Fan Fest and will not be available for sale on the day of or during Fan Fest. The cost of each autograph pass is $25 per player.
All proceeds from autograph sales will benefit the ALS Association Florida Chapter. At Rays Fan Fest in 2014, between the Rays Charity Yard Sale at 162 Landing and autograph sales, $100,000 was raised to benefit local charities.
Once again, there will be one player autograph station free for kids 14 and under and for fans who have purchased autograph passes. More than 30 former major league players will be available to sign autographs for free throughout the day to go along with personalized interaction with Rays players and coaches and numerous activities for kids.
Additionally, fans can become a Rays Member by purchasing a limited edition Fan Fest Flex Pack that includes a Kevin Kiermaier Bobblehead and an autograph pass pre-sale opportunity by visiting raysbaseball.com or calling 888-FAN-RAYS.
