Rays sell out Pride Night game dedicated to Orlando victims

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) The Tampa Bay Rays say their Pride Night game on Friday, dedicated to the victims of last Sunday's mass shooting in Orlando, is sold out.

The Rays put all open seats to the game against San Francisco on sale for $5 this week, with all proceeds benefiting the Pulse Victims Fund , set up for the families of the victims.

The Rays are also accepting donations in support of the Pulse Victims Fund, and additional donation centers will be located at the ballpark Friday.

Blood drives will be conducted at Tropicana Field on Friday and Saturday, with donors receiving T-shirts and vouchers for tickets for future games.
