Rays announce opening day sellout
The Rays announced that Sunday's season opener is sold out.
That makes it the 11th straight home opener the Rays have sold out, which they say is "the longest home opener sellout streak among Tampa Bay teams." They say it is the fourth earliest date they have sold out, behind 1998 (December 6), 2009 (February 26) and 2012 (February 29).
The Rays take on the Blue Jays at 4:05 p.m., with ESPN2 televising nationally in addition to Fox Sports Sun.
Tickets remain available for the other three games of the opening week series.
