Rays Biscuits Confirmed

As I reported on August 30th, an exhibition game between the hometown Montgomery Biscuits and the parent club, the Tampa Bay Rays will take place in March. The story is being reported by local station WNCFtv, who say the announcement will be made official on Tuesday. Also about to be reported by WSFA, so it must be true haha

Its nice they waited until after the Southern league playoffs, unlike Pensacola who announced an exhibition against the Cincinnati Reds before the start of the 2014 season. League officials usually prefer to keep the focus on the field during the postseason, and frown on such announcements - although they arent forbidden it likely doesn't win friends in the SL main office.

Details to come tomorrow, cant wait to find out if they announce anything other than the date. Will we learn of an extended PDC? Will we hear who is expected, 40 man roster or split squad? What is the price of the seats? Probly going to be an expensive ticket, but one Biscuits fans can't afford to miss!

Based on my experiences over the years, there will be an extension announced in the near future between Montgomery and Tampa. Otherwise, Tampa would not be playing in Montgomery at the end of a PDC.

Agreed, Chuck!
This has obviously been in the works for more than a year, one of the worst kept secrets in Biscuits history hahaha
