Last year the Rays played a series of home games in Orlando instead of in Tampa. Building on the success of last years event, the Rays decided to do it again. The April 22-24 series against the Toronto Blue Jays will be played in Orlando. Needless to say, the environment in Orlando will be better than the domed games played in Tampa Bay.
The April series against the Blue Jays should be a very good series. The Jays are underrated by most in baseball and the Rays are clearly on the up and up. The Jays have a lot of strong pitching while the Rays showcase young talent at most positions. Hopefully the event in Orlando will be well attended and the Rays can pick up more and more fans. I’m sure it is the Rays hope that as their team improves more and more that they will actually draw more fans to home games. Special events like this are designed to drum up more interest in teams and with any luck, the series will be a success.
