Any babies born on Monday — Opening Day — at Bayfront Hospital’s Baby Place will receive four tickets to all future Rays home openers as part of the “Rays Fan For Life” program. On Tuesday, each baby will receive a gift package delivered by a Rays player and Raymond. Later in the season, the babies and their parents will be invited to Tropicana Field, where the babies will be inducted into the Rays Fan for Life program.

Nickname of the day
