The 2013 Tampa Bay Rays Fan Fest is coming to Tropican Field from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16.
According to the Rays, this year’s Fan Fest will feature a large variety of activities for kids.
Youth stations include “Reading with the Rays,” Sagicor Coaches Clinic with Rays coaches, Sweetbay Kids Run the Bases and High Five stations with Rays players, photos with Rays mascot Raymond and DJ Kitty, baseball interactive activities for all ages and appearances by Rays players and coaches at various stations throughout the day.
A donation to the ALS Association Florida Chapter will again allow fans to receive a wristband which grants the opportunity to get autographs from Rays players and coaches.
Rays TV and radio broadcasters and more than 25 former major league players will also sign autographs for free throughout the day.
In the kids’ interactive zone, kids can take cuts in a big league batting cage, try out their fastball in the speed pitch booth and swing for the fences in the Wiffle Ball Home Run Derby.
Sweetbay Supermarket High Five Station will once again allow kids to run the bases and receive high fives from players as they cross home plate.
In addition, at the Sagicor Coaches Clinic station, Rays coaches and staff will conduct free clinics for kids of all ages, and clubhouse tours will be offered throughout the day.
