How To See The Rays For The Absolute Cheapest

With Opening Day right around the corner, we thought we would share some of our favorite tips on how to save big on your next trip to Tropicana Field.

The Rays are often named among the most affordable teams in all of major league sports, so we wanted to show you some of the best ways to find the cheapest Rays tickets available.

Parking
  • For Monday - Saturday games, the first 100 cars with 4 or more people can park for free in team controlled lots.
  • On Sunday games, all cars that contain 4 or more people can park for free in team controlled lots.
  • There is parking available in downtown St. Petersburg at the Al Lang Lot, South Core Garage & Baywalk Garage. These lots are generally cost $5 - $10 and can be cheaper than parking near the stadium. You can then access the Looper Trolley for a ride to the stadium. The shuttle runs 90 minutes before the game and an hour after the game. This option is great if you want to experience downtown after the game.
Food
I talk to many fans and it sometimes surprises me that a lot of people do not know about this next tip. You can bring in your own food into Tropicana Field for Rays games! Your homemade sandwiches, takeout from a local restaurant or even your hot dogs & hamburgers from tailgating are all approved. Below are a few  guidelines:
  • Food must be for individual/family consumption. 
  • Food must be individual servings, wrapped, bagged or contained within a soft-sided container no larger than 16" X 16" X 8".
  • Water bottles must be sealed and no larger than a liter.
  • Children's single serving juice boxes are also permitted. 

 If planned properly, you can take a family of four to a Major League baseball game for only about $60. That assumes 4 tickets at $10 each, free parking & snacks brought from home. This is something that all Rays fans should be happy to cheer about!
