- With just days away from the first pitch of spring training baseball, Saturday, Rays fans got a head start on the season at the 2016 Fan Fest.

Kids got to run around the bases and received high-fives from Rays players.

There was “Reading with the Rays” where they could listen to stories read by team members.

Matt Moore and Alex Cobb were among the Rays on the phone-a-friend stage, giving surprise calls to fans’ families and friends.

There were also baseball clinics, prizes and autograph sessions.
