For the second year in a row, The Rays Wives will be selling Mystery Balls before the September 8th game against the Texas Rangers. For $40, fans can choose a wrapped up Mystery Ball to find out that it is autographed by a current Rays player, former Rays player (Wade Boggs or Fred McGriff), or All Stars from around the league. Last year, I was fortunate enough to get a 2009 Tampa Bay Rays team signed ball. Friends of mine bought balls signed by Jeremy Hellickson & Lance Berkman.
There will also be a silent auction of game-used and one-of-a-kind Rays items outside of Section 106. Both events begin at 5:10 when the gates open. The Mystery Balls will be sold until all are sold out and the Auction will end after the 6th inning. All money raised from these events will go to All Children's Hospital.
