The Rays are heading home to Tropicana Field to play the division-rival Red Sox after their series against the Yankees was relocated because of Hurricane Irma, which swept through the entire state of Florida earlier this week.
The storm, classified as a Category 4 once it hit the shores of the Sunshine State, forced the Rays to play the Yankees at Citi Field and has left parts of Pinellas County without power as of Tuesday.
Full Game Coverage
The Rays will play the Red Sox from Friday through Sunday, as scheduled, before welcoming the defending World Series champion Cubs for a two-game series beginning Tuesday.
Fans holding tickets to the relocated series against the Yankees can exchange them for the same number of tickets to any of the Red Sox games this weekend or for the final series of the season with the Orioles. The club will donate the value of the exchanged tickets to a local Hurricane Irma relief fund in the name of the ticket-holder. Full refunds are also available upon request.
