There's no question social media mediums like Facebook and Twitter are as mainstream as can be at this point, with millions and millions of users. Still, sports franchises in general sometimes have the tendancy to avoid new movements and remain a bit archaic. Not the Tampa Bay Rays, who are having a "tweetup" during Thursday's game.

Following @RaysBaseball and @RaysRepublic can gain fans access to exclusive discounts. They're also having Twitter Trivia and free food samples throughout the ballpark (MLB.com). CNBC's Darren Rovell is there for the tweetup, and he's taken a picture of the Cuban Burger, which is one of the items being sampled. Rovell also sang the American and Canadian national anthems.

Also, the players are giving away tweetup T-shirts -- here's a picture of David Price's. 

For those who refuse to embrace Twitter, it's only going to continue to become more difficult to hold out as these things happen more and more frequently.

Good to see the Rays being creative to get fans interested in their team. Fielding a relevant and competitive team, as they did for a few years, didn't seem to work...so I guess we have this now.
