Enjoy a day out at the ballpark with Tampa Bay Rays tickets from TicketSmarter! The Tampa Bay Rays joined Major League Baseball in 1998 as an expansion franchise. The team was originally known as the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, but that name was changed to the Rays after the 2007 season. The team has had several successful seasons including winning the AL pennant in 2008 and the East Division titles in 2008 and 2010. A World Series championship still eludes the team, but a strong roster and management personnel look to lead the team to their first season title.
The Rays are members of the American League and play in the East Division. Their common divisional rivals and opponents include historic teams like the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, Baltimore Orioles and Toronto Blue Jays. The team also has an in-state, interleague rivalry with the Miami Marlins known as the Citrus Series. National Baseball Hall of Famer Wade Boggs spent his final years in the MLB with the Tampa Bay Rays and is the only hall of fame inductee associated with the relatively young franchise. TicketSmarter will have a premium selection of Tampa Bay Rays tickets for the entire season including AL East matchups and interleague games.
