The Rays announced details for the 2019 Fan Fest at Tropicana Field, including a new requirement that all adults must print a ticket for the free event, and introducing a new experience with Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell.

Already known for his love of Fortnite, fans will have the opportunity to play video games with Blake Snell for a $500 contribution to the Rays Baseball Foundation, a charity that focuses on youth and educational programming. The one hour experience comes with a personalized Rays jersey and four tickets to a game.

Fans will also be able to buy tickets in a viewing gallery for $50, which guarantees an autograph from Blake Snell. All other autograph opportunities follow the standard $25 ticket process, again with all proceeds going to the Rays Baseball Foundation.
