Six of the top Rays players will be signing autographs at the Feb. 10 Fan Fest for a $20 fee that goes to charity.

Players slated to sign — and subject to change — are Chris Archer, Kevin Kiermaier, Jake Odorizzi, Wilson Ramos, Mallex Smith and Blake Snell.

Passes go on sale this week via raysbaseball.com/fanfest – 10 a.m. Thursday for season-ticket holders, 2 p.m. Thursday for Rays Insiders (who are signed up by noon Wednesday, see raysbaseball.com/newsletter), 10 a.m. Friday for the general public.

This is a change in policy from last year, when the Rays limited autograph pass sales to season-ticket holders, at $100 for three. The lower price is tied to the 20-year anniversary of the team that will be celebrated this year and a major theme in promotions.

Fans are limited to two autograph passes per player, and the team says a limited number will be sold overall. All proceeds from autograph passes will benefit the Rays Baseball Foundation.

More details and a list of current and former players expected to attend will be released soon. The Fan Fest is open 11 a.m.-4 p.m., with admission and parking free.
