PORT CHARLOTTE — The Rays have their first sellout of the season.
The new Ballpark Pass plan, offering a standing room only ticket to all games for the bargain price of $36 a month, proved to be quite popular, as the team sold out the initial allotment, which was fewer than 1,000.
The team is taking names for a waitlist, and could decide to make more available, though space is somewhat limited in the standing areas around the outfield.
The Rays also launched sales Monday morning for two other packages, the Rays Win Pack, in which fans pick tickets to four games for $99 and if the team wins all four get another game; and Flex Packs, with five tickets to any games —with the exceptions of the Red Sox and Yankees — for $99.
