Benefiting Broward Education Foundation's Stoneman Douglas Victims' Fund

Following the Minnesota Twins-Tampa Bay Rays spring training game on Friday, March 9 at Charlotte Sports Park, the Rays Wives will participate in a charity softball game against the Twins Wives. The game will take place approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the game on the main stadium field. Fans must have a ticket for that day's game in order to attend the Wives softball game.

In response to the recent tragedy in Parkland, Fla., the game will be played for the Broward Education Foundation's Official Stoneman Douglas Victims' Fund. The Rays and Charlotte Stone Crabs have each committed $5,000 to the Broward Education Foundation. The 50/50 raffle at Charlotte Sports Park on Friday will also benefit the Broward Education Fund.
