Rays add ticket deals, another $2 kids night

As the Rays battle for a playoff spot, the team has sweetened its lure for fans with a series of ticket specials designed to boost attendance — including the return of the popular $2 Kids Night.

There will be 1,000 lower level seats at Tropicana Field available online through raysbaseball.com for $9.53 for every remaining home game this season.

There will be a Buy Two, Get Two free deal on outfield seats for all remaining Tuesday home games beginning with the Mariners game this week — including the highly anticipated Sept. 10 game against the Red Sox. This offer is available online through raysbaseball.com via coupons that will be appearing regularly in the Tampa Bay Times. The first coupon code will be in Sunday's Times.

There will be another $2 Kids Night this Wednesday in the game against Seattle. You have to buy the tickets online in advance, but fans who buy one full-priced ticket in select seating areas can buy up to three tickets for kids 2-14 for $2 each. There also will be free parking in team lots for cars with four or more passengers.

The first $2 Kids Night on July 31 drew 25,095, including some 9,700 kids.

And finally, for any game that fans buy four or more tickets at raysbaseball.com, there will be a 10 percent discount off face value.

The Rays averaged 28,700 fans for their three games against the Giants last weekend, which they said was their best attended three-game home series since an April 6-8 home stand in 2012. The Rays had nearly 32,000 last Saturday and a sellout Sunday.

For information on the ticket specials, see raysbaseball.com or 1-888-FAN-RAYS.

  4. Seasoned cast scores an extra-base hit for St. Petersburg Opera with 'Faust'

    Stage

    TAMPA — Charles Gounod's Faust sets the table early. The world-weary philosopher immortalized in a dramatic poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is in his study, lamenting his state of affairs. He's willing to give away everything he has to be young again, even his soul.
