Live! From Tampa!
The crowd in left field for Boston's BP ended up getting 10 homers. In right field, we ended up with two. I'm still bitter about this. No, I didn't bring a glove.

Live! From Tampa!
That brown-red shag carpeting doubles as the "warning track" at the Trop. No wonder Rocco keeps getting hurt.

Live! From Tampa!
In center field, there is a giant fish tank with a bunch of stingrays. More fans were more interested in this tank than batting practice. If the Rays want to liven up home games, they should stick this tank in the middle of right field.
