FanFest draws large crowd
The crowd formed early for Saturday’s FanFest at Tropicana Field, with the Rays estimating a total of 25,000, up several thousand from last year.
Principal owner Stuart Sternberg, who flew in from New York Saturday morning for the event, was pleased with the turnout.
“What could be better than this - I’m smiling ear to ear,’’ he said. “These are always great and each one you can say is better than the last, but there’s a real sense of optimism.’’
The event raised about $100,000 for the Rays Baseball and ALS foundations.
