The Rays officially announced their April series at Disney against the Blue Jays. Here’s the press release from the team:
The Tampa Bay Rays will return to Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., to play the Toronto Blue Jays, April 22-24. The Rays swept a three-game series from the Texas Rangers at the Disney Sports Complex last May 15-17 in the first regular-season major league games ever played in the Orlando area.
“From the atmosphere at the ballpark, to the exposure the games generated throughout the State of Florida, to the series sweep, our experience at Disney last year was a great success,” said team President Matt Silverman. “More importantly, we provided fans in the Orlando area a first-hand look at the Rays. We are committed to extending the Rays deep into Central Florida and growing interest in our exciting, young team throughout the state.”
“We are thrilled to have the Rays back once again and look forward to another successful and entertaining series,” said Ken Potrock, Senior Vice President of Disney Sports Enterprises. “Having regular-season Major League Baseball return adds to the number of unique experiences that our guests can enjoy at Disney’s Wide World of Sports.”
Individual tickets for the three-game set will go on sale Saturday, February 16 at the Champion Stadium Box Office at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex, Tropicana Field Box Office, Rays Tampa Office & Pro Shop, via the Rays official website at http://www.raysbaseball.com or http://www.raysbeisbol.com, all Ticketmaster locations, and via Ticketmaster Phonecharge at (727) 898-7297 or (407) 839-3900.
Tickets can also be purchased via an internet-only special on Friday, February 15.
