Tampa Bay Rays Family Fun Day at Tropicana Field
I am truly impressed with the how much the Tampa Bay Rays offer families! If you haven’t read my post about the Tampa Bay Rays Rookies Kids Club, then make sure you check that out. Plus, the Tampa Bay Rays also offer Family Days at Tropicana Field every Sunday and it is so much fun!
Growing up in Boston it is hard to stray away from my roots, sports teams are embedded in you at an early age up there. But Tampa has been stealing my heart in every way since we moved south, and this includes our first Tampa Bay Rays Game! I have never experienced a major league team put so much effort into their young fans as I did when we went to Family Day at Tropicana Field, and the fact that they do this weekly is simply incredible.
