Colome joins roster for Rays Saturday Fan Fest event
All-Star reliever Alex Colome has been added to the list of players expected at the Rays Saturday Fan Fest at the Trop, open 11-4 with free admission and parking.
The Rays moved the Fan Fest up to before spring training this year due to a series of scheduling issues, and as a result will have only a limited number of their major-league players - who come voluntarily - on hand.
With Colome, the list - which is subject to change - includes 17 players from the big-league camp roster, headlined by fan favorites Chris Archer and Kevin Kiermaier:
Jose De Leon
Steven Souza Jr.
While autographs are limited to season-ticket holders (at 3 for a $100 donation to charity), the Rays are putting the focus on a series of interactive events with the players, such as tailgate-style games and high-five stations. There will be more than 40 former major-leaguers, including some ex-Rays, signing autographs for free.
