Upcoming Events at Tropicana Field
Our very own Major League Baseball team, the Tampa Bay Rays, are busily underway with their 2017 season, and as always here at the Westshore Grand we’re rooting for them on the road and during their homestands just a hop, skip, and a jump away over at Tropicana Field. (Don’t worry: We show fans of rival teams and diehard Rays followers alike the very same warm hospitality here at our hotel.)
Catching the Rays in action on their home diamond is a blast anytime, but Tropicana Field designates certain games as themed “Special Events.” These days, which often shine a well-deserved spotlight on particular organizations and issues, also offer some great deals and unique fan perks.
Upcoming Rays Special Events at Tropicana Field
May 21st sees several Rays Special Events celebrations overlap when the team faces off against the New York Yankees at 1:10 PM. You can buy dedicated tickets for Breast Cancer Awareness Day, Jewish Heritage Day, and Salute to Veterans, which award you discounted Press Level seating and a souvenir (such as a Pink Rays headwrap or Rays kippah). If you’ve got a group of 10 or more, you’ll get additional deals—including your very own scrolling scoreboard welcome!
Other upcoming Rays Special Events include Pride Night (June 9), Girl Scout Day (June 10), and Boy Scout Day (June 11) during the Rays’ homestand series against the Oakland Athletics as well as Law Enforcement Day when they play the Baltimore Orioles on June 25 and Autism Speaks Day for a game versus the Boston Red Sox on July 9.
Baseball & Fan Fun at the Westshore Grand
Combining a Special Events game at Tropicana Field with a stay at the Westshore Grand treats you to a steal of a deal of a getaway on Tampa Bay. On our end of things, you’ll get to enjoy some of the most stylish guestrooms and suites in Tampa, dig into fabulous eats at our very own Shula’s Steak House (named for Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula and themed after the Dolphins’ epic 1972 season), and enjoy some truly topnotch hospitality all across the board. And you’ll take advantage of a unique themed ticket to a hearty round of bat-and-ball, Tampa Bay Rays-style, just across the water in St. Petersburg.
If that sounds like one heck of a way to spend a vacation (or spice up a business trip), get in touch with us today and book a Westshore Grand stay during one of the Tampa Bay Rays Special Events!
