Tampa Bay Rays

Zimmer yucks it up in Rays promotional video

There are only a few weeks until Opening Day and the Tampa Bay Rays are promoting a new ticket offer called the Flex Pack. The Flex Pack comes with a card that replaces paper tickets and can also be loaded with funds to purchase concessions at a 5 percent discount.

Just don’t tell that to Rays senior advisor Don Zimmer.

To promote the offer, the Rays presented Zimmer with his own Flex Pack card and told him he’d need it to get into games. Then they captured his hilarious reaction on video.

“I don’t need nothing to get in. They know who I am. I can get what I want,’ the flustered, 83-year old baseball legend says in the video.

We’re sure he’s right. When you’re the face of the notorious Zim Bear, nobody’s going to keep you out.
