Rays' 2017 schedule includes single-admission doubleheader

TORONTO — The Rays' 2017 schedule includes an old-fashioned touch as they will stage a single-admission doubleheader — two games for the price of one ticket — June 10 against the A's.

Other home highlights include a Sunday, April 2, ESPN-televised opener against the Yankees and the Sept. 19-20 return of former manager Joe Maddon with his Cubs.

The scheduled single-admission doubleheader will be the majors' first since July 16, 2011, when the A's hosted the Angels and just the second in more than 20 years. (It will be the second at the Trop, as the Rays and Tigers played in 2004 to make up games canceled due to a hurricane threat.)

"Many of us in the Rays organization have fond memories of single-gate doubleheaders, so this is something that we have long wanted to do," Rays president Brian Auld said in a statement. "The schedule lines up for it nicely next season, and we're going to work hard to make it a special day at Tropicana Field."

The Rays will see Maddon first in Chicago as they play at Wrigley Field on July 4-5. Other interleague visitors to the Trop are the Brewers, Reds and Marlins. The Rays visit the Cardinals, Marlins and Pirates.
