Tampa Bay 2012 spring schedule released

Tampa Bay RaysThe Tampa Bay Rays released a 2012 spring-training schedule that calls for 16 home games at Charlotte Sports Park.

You can view the schedule here.

Our schedule differs slightly from the schedule posted by mlb.com. We’re working on the assumption that home teams, like the Boston Red Sox, are more accurate about their own starting times than the mlb.com staff; there are two cases where we’re using Fort Myers home start times providing by the Red Sox and Twins instead of the times provided by mlb.com for Tampa Bay away games.

Pitchers and catchers will report Monday, February 20 and the Rays will begin their home schedule on Sunday, March 4 against the Minnesota Twins.

Ticket prices are unchanged from last spring. No word on when they go on sale.
