Rays vs. Dodgers

Tampa Bay RaysPer Marc Lancaster:
The fact the Rays stumbled into a perfect sales pitch for new fans by reaching the World Series just before the transition made it all the better. Demand for Grapefruit League tickets has been high, with reserved seats for every game in Port Charlotte sold out by Jan. 15 and about 3,000 season tickets sold overall.

The Rays "were blown away," said Charlotte County Commission Chairman Tricia Duffy. "The response from our community has been unbelievable."

Per Dylan Hernandez:
The Dodgers anticipated a financial windfall by moving their preseason home from Vero Beach, Fla. to Arizona, thousands of miles closer to the vast majority of their fans and to a sparkling new training complex expected to attract the attention of deep-pocketed corporate sponsorship. It hasn't worked out that way.

The Dodgers, who open camp Saturday, had a goal of selling 4,000 season tickets for spring training but will probably sell about half of that, chief operating officer Dennis Mannion said.
