The first doubleheader featured a group of Rowdies players and staff at the Rays early afternoon game. Rowdies coach Neill Collins participated in pregame festivities, including a ceremonial “first kick” instead of a first pitch.

Following the Rays 5-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels, starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow made the trip across town to Al Lang. The Rowdies gave Glasnow a custom jersey, and the pitcher participated in the coin flip before the match.

The Rowdies drew 1-1 with the Charleston Battery on Saturday after allowing the equalizing goal in the 88th minute.

The doubleheader ticket package is one of many promotions by the Rays to improve attendance. The Rays have also offered $5 tickets and ticket giveaways to first responders, teachers and military personnel.
