Astro, gnome headline Rays promotions

The Rays have plenty of promotions planned for home games this season, and the upcoming six-game homestand against the A’s and Yankees feature two of the more interesting ones.

Sunday’s series finale against the A’s will feature a bobblehead of David Price’s dog, Astro. The figurine will be available for children 14 and younger, while supplies last. That game will also be the first “Bark in the Park” game for the Rays this season,

Wednesday’s finale against the Yankees brings another interesting promotion: a Joe Maddon gnome. The first 10,000 fans will receive the gnome of the bespectacled Rays manager, presented by Sun Sports.
