ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (970 WFLA)The Rays open the season Monday against the Blue Jays at Tropicana Field. 

The Rays' Melanie Lenz hopes you'll be able to see some great plays by enjoying the Trop's new walkway around the entire lower bowl seating area, called ‘Rays 360.’

There’s also "The porch," which is the new open concessions area that replaced the old Batter's Eye Restaurant.

The game starts at 4:00 p.m. and it's a sell-out.  

You can hear it live beginning with the 3:30 p.m. pre-game show on our sports station 620 WDAE. CLICK HERE to listen live.

Eric Carlson of the St. Petersburg Downtown Partnership says there's plenty of parking for today's home opener. He says you can park in the south core parking garage and take a shuttle to the Trop.
