The home games of the Tampa Bay Rays are played at The Charlotte County Sports Park at 2300 El Jobean Rd, Port Charlotte, FL.

The Park was renovated to the tune of some $28 Million to welcome the team to their new spring home starting in 2009.

So if you attend workouts or games, you'll be among those witnessing a recent rebirth of spring training in Port Charlotte as well as updated new digs for the team.

The facility had been without a team since the Texas Rangers left after the 2002 season.

2017 Schedule and Tickets Below

The Tampa Bay Rays will open their 2017 spring training exhibition season against the Minnesota Twins at 7:05 pm on February 24, 2017 away in Fort Myers, Florida. (See complete game schedule below.).

The first spring training work out for the Rays is scheduled for mid-late February.

MLB tickets to see the Tampa Bay Rays exhibition games have been around since the franchise first began in 1998.

The Rays are fortunate in that their spring training facility is located in their home state of Florida. It makes it easy for the local fans to come out to the old ball game during spring training season.

Make your plans to come out and see this year's new comers hoping to make the team along with returning Tampa Bay Rays as well as veterans.

There's nothing like watching spring training exhibition games while being able to work on your tan. Ah, Florida Spring Training!!
