PLEASE NOTE: We need to get our equipment to Gate 7 at Tropicana Field THREE HOURS before Rays game time so that they can store the gear in the auxillary locker room until after the Rays game. Then, after the Rays game, we can go to the auxillary locker room to put on our uniforms and get our equipment. If I can get 3 people to go with me and tailgate before the game, then I will take the league equipment AND AS MUCH OF THE PLAYERS EQUIPMENT AND UNIFORMS AS I CAN FIT IN MY TRUCK to Gate 7 in time. I then will tailgate until the start of the game. This way, those who want to wait until game time to get to the field can do so. The first thing that I need is 3 volunteers to "take a bullet" and tailgate with me.

Concessions will not be open during our game. I will try to have some drinks during our game (in addtion to the water in the dugout), but if you want to have some food during our game and IF I CAN GET IT IN OUR COOLER, then I will need that before I leave for the Trop at 10 AM on 6/28.


If you need tickets, send us an e-mail. We blieve that some are available from our participants.

On Sunday, June 28, 2009, we are participating in the Rays Field of Dream program in which we play a game AT THE TROP after the Rays game.

Sec. 131

We have Baseline Box Seats for the Rays game and then get to use virtually the full Tropicana Field facility! The Rays say: “We give you a full fledged Major League Experience. We put on a full major league production with staff on hand for the scoreboard, video board, walk up music, headshots for scoreboard, and grounds crew. Teams get full use of the dugouts, PA system, and the bullpens as well. The Rays will store our equipment during the Rays game.

The seats have a $25 per seat day of game value, but we get them at a discount so we can sell them for only $20 per ticket.

We cut-off the rosters for our game once we sold enough tickets, so that we will have PLENTY of field time and at-bats. We can still sell tickets at the discounted price.

We will use an "ALL STAR" FORMAT. It is not important what team's uniform you wear. It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to wear the BEST LOOKING UNIFORM!

Shortly before the Trop Game, we will have "Picture Day" for which all Trop players will need to be present and to wear the uniform that they will wear at the Trop Game. These pictures will be for the "big screen" at the Trop.

STAYED TUNED FOR "PICUTRE DAY". YOU MUST WEAR THE UNIFORM YOU EXPECT TO WEAR AT THE TROP! (Sorry, but this is so we can see if we approve, and if not, we may stick you with the loan of a uniform that we will approve.)

SORRY PLAYERS: But there is to be absolutely NO DRINKING of alcoholic bverages (EVEN BEER) during the Rays game. We plan to have a party "off site" after the game.

National Anthem to be sung by Gabby Lavelle!

Take Me out to the Ball Game to be sung by Lexi and Kalli Reis!

Aspect ratios on photos may be off so that the Rays production crew has the most with which to work as the photo is edited for the jumbo screen.
