Those who are planning to purchase tickets to the Tampa Bay Rays season opener against the Baltimore Orioles on April 2 can still do so through the team’s ticket office, but you might want to hold off until tomorrow. David Price has 100 tickets that he is planning to give away to folks who are in the Tampa area on Thursday. Price made the announcement on Wednesday morning and told his followers that it would be smart to wear their Rays gear around the Tampa area tomorrow. He has retweeted a few people who talked about wanting the tickets, but said that he will decide on a time and place on Thursday. I get 100 tickets to opening day!! If you live in the Tampa area be ready cause I’m giving all these away!! #k-9 twitter.com/DAVIDprice14/s… — David Price (@DAVIDprice14) March 27, 2013 Athletes giving away tickets on Twitter never gets old, especially with all the stupid stuff we are used to seeing on social media from most of them. Price is not the first nor the second athlete to do something like this, but that doesn’t make the offer any less generous.
