Tens of Fans Attend Rays Game

Sep 18, 2012

















Tampa, FL - The Tampa Bay Rays, in an effort to boost their embarrassingly poor attendance - MLB's worst - announced that this Friday will be iPhone 5 Night, with the first 10,000 fans receiving Apple's latest gizmo, absolutely free.

"We're hoping to pull in at least 8,000 fans for this very attractive promotion," said Tampa Bay Rays' owner Stuart Sternberg, who added that no one receiving an iPhone would be forced to stay more than one inning. 

Sternberg said that Tropicana Field's concession stands would also be selling fan fav banana-flavored Dippin' Dots at a "steep discount."

 
Other Ray's promotions in the works are Big Screen TV Night, McMansion Makeover Monday, Tesla Roadster Day, and, for Father's Day, Viagra Night.


"Who doesn't love Dippin' Dots?" said Rays' All-star third baseman Evan Longoria who predicted a sellout for Friday's night game againt the Toronto Blue Jays.
