Local businesses are here demonstrate the passion and excitement surrounding our team, and we are rabid in our support of the Rays and what they mean to the Tampa Bay area.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Brett Morgan, variable operations director for Morgan Automotive Group, is leading efforts to help sell out Tropicana Field for the September 18 Tampa Bay Rays’ game against the Texas Rangers.
The event, called “Top Off the Trop,” represents a number of Tampa Bay-area businesses coming together to demonstrate the strong support the Rays receive from their fans and the community. The game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN’s “Wednesday Night Baseball,” and will take place during the team’s second-to-last home stand in the midst of a tight pennant race.
“As a community, we are sometimes criticized for the Rays’ complex stadium issues and a perceived lack of support for our team, which couldn’t be further from the truth,” said Morgan. “Local businesses are here demonstrate the passion and excitement surrounding our team, and we are rabid in our support of the Rays and what they mean to the Tampa Bay area.”
Morgan has worked with the Rays’ front office to coordinate the event. At the game, groups of 20 or more will receive a free Rays hat for each guest, as well as a lower-level reserved ticket for just $20 — with no Ticketmaster or any other fees added on.
A die-hard Rays fan, Morgan is the son of Morgan Automotive Group owner Larry Morgan and has helped lead the company since its founding in 2004. Over the past nine years, the company has grown from one location to 11 stores across seven different markets in Florida. In his current role, Brett Morgan oversees all of the company’s stores.
“Many people in our community know how I feel about the Rays, and this is a dream of mine,” said Morgan. “I’m extremely excited to lead this effort and hope that businesses, organizations and other groups in our area take advantage of this great deal and show their support of our local MLB team.”
The Rays and the Rangers are both vying for American League playoff spots, along with the Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, Oakland Athletics, Cleveland Indians, Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees.
Organizations interested in bringing together a group for the September 18 game should email Morgan at bmorgan(at)morganautogroup(dot)com, providing a contact person and how many tickets are needed. Soon after, a Rays ticket advisor will contact the group’s organizer and assist with providing the specially coded tickets for the game.
