Spring training tickets go on sale Friday, but ...
The Rays announced that tickets to their home spring training games will go on sale to the general public starting at 10 a.m. Friday only via raysbaseball.com.

But it's not that simple.
There will be a pre-sale for Rays insider subscribers starting on Thursday via raysbaseball.com. (Registration to qualify as a Rays insider is free and runs through noon Wednesday.)
And there is actually an "early access pre-sale" that starts at 10 a.m. Tuesday, where tickets will be first available, though with a hefty surcharge, up to $15 extra per ticket for games vs. the Phillies, Red Sox and Yankees, and sold in limited quantities.
