      Appreciate the schedule…was out there one day last week … FYI … anyone going …don`t forget your hat ~ sun block and water …

  2. What time are the games?

  3. jwdonten says:

    All games are at 1:00 with the exception of the final game on 4/4 which will start at 10. But please keep in mind, these are informal games, while the start time may be 1, they typically start when all players and umps are ready and can be moved up or back depending on weather and other circumstances.

    Will they let you walk thru from the Stadium parking lot now on game day ?
    Couple of weeks ago … not !
    Thanks ….

      Wow. They really cut down on access to the backfields. I did not know that you can not access from the stadium parking lot on gameday and I saw they posted the street side of the backfields as no-parking. What are they expecting, people to not attend the MiLB game on Rays home games.
