UPDATE: The $5 tickets for the Friday June 14 game sold out in the first 24 hours.

The Rays are taking away one of the excuses for people not showing up to support their team, offering $5 tickets to each of the next five home games.

The $5 tickets are available via a Summer Special flash sale from now until 11:59 p.m. Thursday only at raysbaseball.com/specials, with 5,000 available for each game: June 10, 11, 12 vs. the A’s; June 13, 14 vs. the Angels.

There are still ticketing fees, through the Rays arranged for a reduction, to $1 per ticket and $1.50 per order, so two tickets would cost $13.50 total.

Sales are limited to eight tickets per game per person. Seating will vary between the 100, 200 and party deck levels, with assignments made the day before the game via the MLB Ballpark app. (Tickets bought together will be seated together.)

The flash sales have been popular with other teams and the Rays have been working for a few weeks on launching their own.
