The Tampa Bay Rays have announced special “fan appreciation” pricing for the final homestand of the 2021 regular season.

Tickets for the remaining home games against the Detroit Tigers (September 16-19), Toronto Blue Jays (September 20-22) and Miami Marlins (September 24-26) will start at $10.

Per a team press release, thousands of tickets will be available for each game at the $10 price in the Lower Reserved (sections 129-149), as well as the “Party Deck” sections. Tickets are limited and available only online through RaysBaseball.com and the MLB Ballpark app. Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance.

In addition to the discounted ticket offer, fans can take advantage of concession specials, including:

  • $5 Budweiser and Bud Lights (21 years and older)
  • $4 Coca-Cola soft drinks
  • $5 Popcorn and candy

At 88-52, the Rays have the best record in the American League and the 2nd-best record in the majors. The club is seeking a second straight AL East division title and a third straight postseason appearance for the first time in franchise history.

The Rays are in the midst of the best overall performance in franchise history, but possibly the worst attended season in franchise history as well.

Attendance at the stadium is of course complicated by the ongoing global pandemic, which has been at its worst for the state of Florida over the last few months, although daily trends in cases and hospitalizations may finally be decreasing.

The Rays previously relaxed social distancing at Tropicana Field, but maintain a requirement for masks for children and adults who are unvaccinated. A full list of health and safety measures at Tropicana Field can be reviewed on the team website here.
