Fans must pay for autographs at 'Rays Fan Fest'

Posted: Updated:
ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

There are big changes coming to next month's Tampa Bay Rays Fan Fest.

The price for an autograph from David Price, Evan Longoria and Wil Myers will cost you $125, and a limit of 60 passes will be sold for those players to guarantee each person receives an autograph.

Fans will pay $25 each for autographs from 11 other players, including Chris Archer, Yunel Escobar, Ben Zobrist, James Loney, Matt Moore, Desmond Jennings, Matt Joyce, David DeJesus, Alex Cobb, Grant Balfour and Jeremy Hellickson.

The proceeds will be donated to ALS Association Florida Chapter and the Rays Foundation.

Passes must be purchased in advance at raysbaseball.com. They go on sale at 4 p.m. Friday. There are pre-sale opportunities for Rays season ticket holders and flex pack buyers.

Passes will not be sold at Fan Fest, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Feb. 22.

Admission and parking to Fan Fest is still free and you can still get free autographs from the remaining Rays players and coaches. More than 25 former big league players will also sign autographs for free throughout the day.

Last season, fans paid $50 for wrist bands, allowing them to wait in line for autographs.  The problem was the demand for a number of the players was so high that not everyone received an autograph.
