ST. PETERSBURG —The Rays are bringing back the popular Randy Land seating area for Friday games, albeit at an increased price, and adding to the long list of themed, appreciation, cultural and identity day/night promotions.

Randy Land was introduced last season, and embraced by fans and leftfielder Randy Arozarena himself.

Available for the 13 Friday home games, fans get a ticket in section 141 or 143, which are behind leftfield, and an Arozarena-themed T-shirt. Plus, a free beverage if he hits a homer in that game. The price was increased from $49 to $56, which now conveniently coincides with Arozarena’s jersey number, for most games. For May 3 vs. the Mets, Randy Land tickets are $63 and for May 10 vs. the Yankees, $79.

In addition to 22 previously announced games with cultural/identity themes and related ticket packages, the Rays have added others, including krewe (June 29), ZooTampa (Aug. 18) and Harry Potter (Aug. 31).

They are also bringing back games themed for pickleball (April 12), healthcare appreciation (May 25), salute to veterans (May 26), Margaritaville (July 13), law enforcement appreciation (July 14), country day (Aug. 10) and first responders (Sept. 22). Tickets purchased for themed events include a promotional item.

And there will be a series of games themed to colleges, with Florida A&M and St. Petersburg College added to the list. The team also will continue to offer discounted tickets for Monday-Thursday games to college students with valid .edu email addresses.

The list of promotional giveaways is expected to be released in advance Saturday’s free Fan Fest at Tropicana Field. Information on a Ballpark Pass-type offer is expected before opening day.
