Rays host another doggie day at the ballgame

The last time the Rays invited owners to bring their dogs to the tbt* Party Deck, tickets sold out fast, so you better fetch these. The Tampa Bay Rays will host their second Bark in the Park on June 16 during the Rays-Royals game at 1:40 p.m.

Who knows, maybe David Price's beloved (and equally famous) French bulldog Astro will show up again.

A special seating area is reserved for dog owners and their pets, and the tbt* Party Deck will turn into the "Dog Zone," with product samples and activities for both dogs and their owners.

In addition, the Rays Wives will collect both dog and cat food to benefit the Pet Pal Animal Shelter. (The shelter prefers Science Diet if you are shopping.)

Donations will be collected in the tbt* Party Deck from 11:40 a.m. through the end of the second inning.

If you miss out, you have one more chance, when they hold a pet food drive during the final Bark in the Park game on Aug. 18.

For ticket information go to raysbaseball.com/specialevents. All dogs must have the required vaccinations and must be leashed (no retractable leashes) and licensed.
