Rays to remove tarps for games 6, 7
The Rays announced today they will remove the tarps on upper-level seats, making 5,762 more tickets available if the ALCS goes to Game 6. The seats, mostly with obstructed views of the field, haven't been sold for previous games this season. "Interest in Rays postseason tickets was extraordinary," team president Matt Silverman said in a statement. "Although the seating capacity we established provides optimal fan experience, Rays fans have made it very clear that they want us to make every possible seating opportunity available." Tickets will go on sale Wednesday to those who won the right through the team's postseason ticket lottery. Those eligible to purchase will be determined by lottery and notified by e-mail. Fans still can sign up for the potential lottery for World Series tickets at raysbaseball.com. Those who previously registered do not need to do so again.
