Rays to Play in Orlando, do you Care?

Postby deerayfan072 » Fri Dec 15, 2006 10:10 am

The Rays announced they will play 3 games at the Disney complex against the Rangers. Doesn't affect me b/c i live in Tampa. Do any you guys live close to Orlando and plan on attending?

It does interests me just a bit. Even though I live in North Carolina, the local airline here does offer a trip to Orlando for only $40. So yea it does improve my chances of seeing the Drays just a bit more next year.

Normally quite a bit, somewhere in the range of 30 a year or so. It was a bit less last year though due to another local team(Kinston Indians) being loaded with some nice talent.(Crowe, Lofgren)

It is as good as a stadium as I have ever been in as far as fan friendly. I have a friend who has season tickets right beside the Bulls dugout, and I have had a few conversations with some of the players in the past.

Thats awesome. I make it to about 40 of the Rays games here and usually get there early to go down close to the field and talk with players and get autographs

My goals for seeing the Drays this year right now are hopefully the Sox series in late July, the series at Orlando, and maybe a series in September as well.
