Season Ticket Holder Benefits
In addition, the team has added extra value to all season ticket packages.

The Rays Rewards program is designed exclusively for Rays season ticket holders and enables them to earn points redeemable for exciting baseball experiences, memorabilia and more. The Rays Rewards program awards season ticket holders points for activities such as purchasing or renewing season tickets, using their Rays Card for entry into games and spending e-cash for concessions and merchandise at Tropicana Field.
Rays Rewards Points may be redeemed for select promotional items, exclusive auction items and can't-buy experiences such as watching batting practice from the field.
Draft Room Season Ticket Club
The team also announced the creation of an exclusive club for season ticket holders: The Draft Room Season Ticket Club, an exclusive area for full season ticket holders that will blend hospitality and comfort with advertised "behind the scenes access to Rays staff, players, and coaches."
The project is a collaborative effort between PRA and Carlson Studio Architecture (CSA), PRA's strategic alliance in Sarasota, FL. The PRA/CSA team's design standards incorporate sustainable design criteria, such as
energy and water conservation, healthy indoor air quality and materials that are more natural, recycled or otherwise eco-friendly.
This renovated space will have new access from the main seating bowl behind home plate, and will feature pre-game entertainment and programming as well as a season ticket service center.
The Draft Room will feature enhanced concessions offerings, local craft beers(!) and themed items based on visiting teams.
