Fan Mail

Due to the number of requests received by the club, we are unable to provide autographs for fans. Nevertheless we would like to suggest the following procedures to help you in your efforts to correspond with our players. Please direct any correspondence or requests to the specific player at:

Player Name
Tampa Bay Rays
One Tropicana Drive
St. Petersburg, FL 33705

Writing Tips:

Because of the volume of mail we receive, it is impossible to trace correspondence sent to players. We therefore discourage sending items of personal value.

  • Each player is responsible for his own fan mail.
  • Only send correspondence during the regular season, between the months of April and September, as the majority of the players do not live in the Tampa Bay region.
  • We hope that you find this information helpful and we thank you for your interest in the Tampa Bay Rays.
