Peanuts, popcorn and cracker jacks — It’s time to get in the spring swing!

How much attendees pay to watch the Tampa Bay Rays play might depend on the opponent and if you want to feel the breeze of the pitch.

Just behind the home plate for Friday’s Pirates game will cost about $29 per seat, but you’ll have to pitch in more cash for the Monday match-up.

A couple of seats remain available for a spot on top of the Rays dugout. If you’re worries about striking out on those selections, there’s more seating available in the upper decks, or you can take a walk over to side views for more affordable options.

The cheapest spots are along the 19,000 foot boardwalk surrounding the field where general admission starts at $10.
