Quarterback Josh Freeman and other Bucs players will be available for autographs during and after the eight practices open to the public.

A fan's guide to camp

The Bucs report for training camp today and will hold the first of eight practices open to the public on Friday. Here's a rundown of what you need to know if you're planning to attend.

Admission

The Bucs no longer require tickets or passes to attend practices. Instead, fans will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Where to sit

Workouts during public practices are being restricted to Field 3, which maximizes opportunities for viewing. Virtually all seating is shaded and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. (There is reserved seating for disabled fans.) The sideline seating is, perhaps, most ideal. But if you want to get a good view of goal-line drills, opt for the end zone seating on the south end of the field.

Concessions and merchandise

The Bucs are offering dis­counted concessions during camp. Also, there are opportunities to purchase team merchandise, featuring recently released NFL apparel.

Autographs and more

Fans will have opportunities to get autographs during each public practice, with players likely to be signing during or afterward. Also, Bucs cheerleaders and mascot Captain Fear will be interacting with fans during practices. For details, go to Buccaneers.com.

Directions, parking

Fans are asked not to enter One Buc Place from the Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard entrance. Instead, there will be an entrance along Himes Avenue, just north of Raymond James Stadium. Parking is free.

Training camp

Where: One Buc Place, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, just east of Raymond James Stadium, Tampa

Admission: Free

Et cetera: All practices are weather permitting and subject to change. For updates, go to Buccaneers.com.

  1. Bucs journal: Kicker Nick Folk has up and downs against Jaguars

    Bucs

    JACKSONVILLE — If the Bucs had hoped for a drama-free night in their kicking game, they'll have to wait another week.

    Bucs kicker Nick Folk celebrates one of his two made field goals against the Jaguars, but he also misses a field goal and has an extra point blocked.
  2. Bucs top Jaguars behind strong first half

    Bucs

    JACKSONVILLE

    There is a reason why the air in Tampa Bay is filled with playoff talk. If Thursday night's 12-8 Bucs preseason win over the Jaguars is any indication, it's also going to be filled with footballs thrown by quarterback Jameis Winston.

    Doug Martin gets the Bucs’ only touchdown  on a 2-yard run, squeaking past linebacker Telvin Smith in the first quarter. He has five carries for 30 yards.
  3. Rays journal: Archer has strong outing, with two mistakes

    The Heater

    TORONTO — Two pitches RHP Chris Archer didn't execute are the ones that stood out Thursday as Josh Donaldson hit them out of the park. But the two solo home runs aside, Archer turned in a sterling outing that went atop the pile of good pitching the Rays keep wasting.

  4. Tim Tebow continues wowing fans as he wraps up bay area games

    Minors

    CLEARWATER — Tracey Fritzinger has seen Tim Tebow play baseball a few times this year. The 40-year-old St. Petersburg resident went to two of his games against the Tampa Yankees, along with Joy, her little sister from Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.

    St. Lucie Mets outfielder Tim Tebow, middle, hangs out in the dugout during Thursday night’s game against the Clearwater Threshers at Spectrum Field, the last of St. Lucie’s eight-day trip to the Tampa Bay area.
