ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) - The Tampa Bay Rays will face the New York Yankees in the season's sold-out opening game at Tropicana Field on Sunday.
The game is scheduled to begin at 1:10 p.m., but hundreds of fans made their way to St. Pete hours beforehand to celebrate opening day.
City Council approved Ferg's Sports Bar's special request to begin serving alcohol at 8 a.m. Sunday. The city's current liquor laws prohibit alcohol sales before 11 a.m. on Sundays.
The game's ceremonial first pitch will be thrown by Gen. Raymond A. Thomas III.
