Tampa Bay Rays release 2011 spring training schedule

ST. PETERSBURG — The Rays' 2011 spring training schedule includes 15 games in their current home of Port Charlotte and two in their old home of St. Petersburg.

On March 9, a Rays split squad returns to Al Lang Field to face the Netherlands national team, one of the international squads that will be using the facility under a new city program.

On March 30, the Rays complete their exhibition schedule with a game against the Blue Jays at Tropicana Field. (Ticket information for those games will be announced in the future.)

The Rays start spring training with a Feb. 16 workout for pitchers and catchers at the Charlotte Sports Park, and they open the exhibition season Feb. 26 with the first of seven games (including their first three) against the Pirates. They play the Jays five times and the Red Sox and Yankees four each. The regular-season opener is April 1 at home against Baltimore.

Other Tampa Bay area appearances include: March 2 and 13 in Dunedin against Toronto; March 6 and 12 in Clearwater against Philadelphia; March 17 and 28 in Tampa at night against New York; Feb. 27, March 7 and 27 in Bradenton against Pittsburgh.
