Tropicana Field Is An Embarrassment

Posted: July 19, 2011 by Keith Stone in baseball, MLB, Tampa Bay, Tropicana Field

On top of the fact that Tropicana Field may be the ugliest stadium in professional sports, how stupid is it that there’s a domed stadium in Tampa Bay? St. Petersburg has an average high temperature of 81 degrees. Only an idiot or an elderly person would want to be inside on a beautiful day.

But wait, there’s more. During last night’s Rays-Yanks game, a bolt of lightning (Tampa Bay Lightning, heehee) hit near the Trop and disrupted the power inside the stadium so much so that the game was delayed for 20 minutes. The game is being played fucking inside to avoid problems like this! It’s not the 1800’s! How can a simple storm affect an indoor baseball game in this day in age? This is further proof that there shouldn’t be Major League Baseball in Tampa Bay. Strip clubs, yes. Baseball, no.

    you guys are a bunch of arrogant assholes like seriously? One the rays don’t have much money to build a new stadium and Tampa bay is the lightning Capitol of the world. So you all can stfu and go pick on a team that has a plenty of money. Speaking that the rays have a shit payroll and made the playoffs 3 out of 4 years they’re doing well. So obviously this is dumbass who is jealous an underdog team is beating hard teams like the Yankees. Stfu and suck a dick please and thank you 🙂

    Not to blow up like the last commenter lol…but this article is rediculous. An outside game June through the end of august would be suicide in the bay area. During hurricane season there is too much rain and lightning. And there is a difference between 81degrees in saint Pete and 81 degrees there. Someone writing in a newspaper should know that……If you are a wankee fan you would visit here in spring unfortunately when the weather is fair hence an open air stadium. Summer is different the weather is extremely unpredictable so that makes the trop comfortable so damn it being ugly and what frumpy hotdog eating wankee fans have to say …..and for the rays advocate…. wrong too. The rays can build a stadium but saint Pete trapped them in the trop til 2027 Tampa is fighting tooth and nail to bring them across the bay and hopefully it will happen so that they can be in a more reasonable area and not on the tip of an island
