Best seats for Rays-Biscuits exhibition will be $28

If you missed it on Twitter (@AStacyLong), tickets for the March 29 Rays-Biscuits exhibition game will be $28 for reserved seats and $20 for lawn seats/standing room only.

(Regular-season seats this year cost $12 for "super box" seats, $10 for box seats and $8 for lawn.)

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience," Biscuits president Greg Rauch said when asked about the ticket prices. "Obviously, there are some expenses to get the Rays here, and we only have 7,000 seats available."

Rauch said the Biscuits will "stay within all fire codes" and not oversell the stadium. The largest crowd in stadium history is 7,591 on July 4, 2010.

"We'll look to be creative on ways to expand capacity where we can, without sacrificing the fans' experience," he said. "We want everybody to have an enjoyable time."
