The Rays have announced more details about the upcoming Fan Fest for the 2020 season.
Fan Fest will begin at 11am on Saturday, February 8, inside of Tropicana Field. Select players will be signing autographs at the event with proceeds benefiting the Rays Baseball Foundation.
From the Fan Fest press release:
“We are excited to welcome everyone to Tropicana Field for Fan Fest on February 8,” said Rays President Brian Auld. “I know many of us are still energized from the postseason run in 2019, and eager for the 2020 Rays to make more history. Fan Fest is a great way to kickoff the 2020 season with a family-friendly affair for all baseball fans.”
As a continuation of last year’s entry process, free tickets are required for access to Fan Fest. Tickets can be claimed on the Ballpark app and scanned from a mobile device for entry. All fans 18 years and older must have a mobile ticket for entry. Children 17 years and under do not need a ticket to attend Fan Fest.
Rays Season Ticket Holders receive exclusive benefits at Fan Fest, including early access through The Outfielder entrance near Gate 7 and special programming in the Season Ticket Holder-only Republic Bank Draft Room, such as photo stations with Rays players and coaches and new menu item sampling.
To redeem the free tickets, fans will need to download the MLB Ballpark app from their respective smartphone’s application store (App Store for iOS and Google Play Store for Android). Instructions from the Rays on how to download the app from the iOS App Store can be found here.
The free tickets are just a few taps away after downloading the Ballpark app, and it’s very easy to do — we have screen recorded the process to redeem the tickets:

Fans attending will receive a free license plate frame courtesy of the Florida Department of Transportation, which is just awesome.
Autograph passes will be available later today at Raysbaseball.com/fanfest for $25, allowing fans a maximum of four (4) autographs per player.
The following players are scheduled to sign autographs (subject to change): Willy Adames, Tyler Glasnow, Brandon Lowe, Austin Meadows, Charlie Morton, Blake Snell and Yoshitomo Tsutsugo. All proceeds from autograph pass sales benefit the Rays Baseball Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, which focuses on youth and educational programming that make a measurable difference in the Tampa Bay region.
We hope you come out to Fan Fest!
