The limited-edition prints will depict seven Rays home series matchups and one Rowdies contest during their respective seasons. Artists will be compensated for their work.

Rays prints will be released throughout the 2020 regular season during specific series, including Opening Day, Jackie Robinson Day, Pride Night and Roberto Clemente Day in recognition of Major League Baseball’s Hispanic Heritage Month. Artists are encouraged to create designs that celebrate our hometown baseball team while embodying their artistic point of view.
