[Update] Marc Topkin is reporting (via Twitter) that all 20,000 tickets have been given away and it took less than 90 minutes.
The Rays also just sent out a press release saying there are “a few tickets remaining for purchase.”
[4:30pm] Below is an image taken this afternoon of people lining up outside the Trop for free tickets. We were told that this is 100-150 yards from the gate and that it is one of three lines.
Prediction: 12,000 tickets given away. 23,000 in attendance.
