ST. PETERSBURG -- The Rays 2008 FanFest, presented by MetroPCS, will be held Feb. 23 at Tropicana Field. Rays single-game tickets for the regular season will also go on sale that day.

FanFest hours will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET for the general public, with 9 a.m. admittance for full-season ticket holders. Admission and parking is free, as it has been every year.

Rays players, coaches and Major League Baseball alumni will be on hand to sign autographs throughout the day. Fans will be able to take a swing in a big league batting cage, test their fastball in the speed pitch booth, hit a home run in the Wiffle Ball Home Run Derby, take the Home-to-First Speed Challenge and tour the Rays clubhouse.

Panel discussions will be held with various MLB alumni, coaches, broadcasters and front-office executives throughout the event.

Artifacts from the Ted Williams Museum and Hitters Hall of Fame will be showcased as well as artifacts from the world's largest autographed baseball collection, including balls signed by Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Ty Cobb and many others. And there will be a baseball card show.

The team will honor its most loyal and diehard fans by inducting seven new members into the Rays/Pepsi Fan Wall of Fame during a ceremony at noon on the field. The Rays Touch Tank will be open for fans to pet and feed live cownose rays. Kids will have the opportunity to run the bases.

A silent auction will take place with proceeds benefiting the Rays Baseball Foundation.

Single-game tickets will go on sale starting at 9 a.m. at the Tropicana Field box office and can also be purchased online (http://www.raysbaseball.com or http://www.raysbeisbol.com).

I will. It is always a blast to hang out during the day and take in baseball early. You get a chance to meet some of the guys and just be around baseball all day
