#29: Tropicana Field, Tampa Bay Rays

Number of Visits: 1 (2005)

Despite the fact that I have it ranked very low, this stadium was better than I thought it would be. Back in 2005, they didn’t charge for parking. That was a nice first impression. Entering the ballpark was like entering a shopping mall. There was a large lobby where they were raffling off a car, sting rays swimming in a tank and a fairly bustling atmosphere. Of course that could be because the Yankees were in town. It is just a shame to watch indoor baseball on AstroTurf in sunny Florida. It’s also a shame I didn’t take a photo! Just imagine me in the last row of the upper deck, keeping score and drinking a beer.

  1. If you’d like, I can send you a photo from the 2011 Beef O’Brady’s Bowl, where Marshall beat Florida International at Tropicana Field. A real barn-burner!
