The Rays will sign autographs, sell memorabilia (including squares of turf and clubhouse carpet), answer questions, read books, high-five kids running the bases, give clubhouse tours and offer other activities during today's free FanFest from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.
Most players and coaches will be there, though the biggest new name, Manny Ramirez, is not on the schedule. So it's uncertain if he'll show. (Attendance isn't mandatory.) And Johnny Damon has to leave before the signing sessions due to a prior commitment. For more details, go to tampabay.com/blogs/rays.
