Maybe Morton, or Meadows, or Pham, or one of half a dozen others. They seem to have a harder time on pop-ups. But they also want to see how loud the park can get. So we still feel that energy from the crowd. It would be cool to see it filled and see how loud it gets, and to see that huge home-field advantage I know we can have. I believe in it. And somewhere back in Rays history there were great moments at the Trop.
All of them are gone, either traded or departed as free agents. Those names serve as proof that the Rays can create their own homegrown stars, names on the back of the jersey that fans can invest in emotionally. And despite their current strength-in-depth approach to building a roster, they have the talent to mint a new generation of franchise players, if they were inclined to do so.
Many—even most—of those deals made good baseball sense. Nobody can dispute that the Rays won the Archer trade, or cut bait on Cobb and Moore at the right time. The touch tank sits just below one of the eight group party areas the team rents out for large gatherings, in addition to luxury boxes.
Some of these party areas are quite close to the action, with one picnic area on each baseline by the bullpens. And the team has held numerous events in conjunction with games, from on-field pregame yoga to dog-friendly games.
Of course, in the minor leagues, the average fan can afford food, drink, and parking in addition to the ticket, whereas most MLB stadiums have priced many fans out of the experience. Not so at the Trop. With the reduced seating capacity, most seats at the Trop are now in the lower deck, which after the renovation rings the entire stadium. I really have no complaints whatsoever.click

These stadiums were built to replace, and were in reaction to, a series of parks designed in the s and s with the intention of hosting both baseball and football. Camden Yards is a cathedral, but almost every Populus-designed retro stadium that came after is an imitation of the original, which is itself an imitation of earlyth-century stadium architecture, and after a while, the retro parks ended up looking just as formulaic as the derided steel and concrete cookie-cutter ballparks they replaced. Sure, each one had its own quirks, but for the most part they were calculatedly and inauthentically quirky.
Rather than having oddly shaped outfield walls to fit the shape of the property like their predecessors, modern parks have oddly shaped outfield walls because old parks did, sometimes ripping design features verbatim from previous stadiums. Very little about the Trop is pretty, and certain aspects of the facility are awkward, but those flaws end up being endearing because—in contrast to the overdetermined pastiche of retro ballparks—they give the park character.
I ended up adoring Tropicana Field. The Trop, for all its New Wave—era architectural artificiality, fits in with the lateth-century design aesthetic of its neighborhood just as seamlessly as Wrigley Field blends into its own milieu. A Camden Yards knockoff in St. Petersburg might conform to national design norms, but it would be devoid of context, rather than unapologetically of its place and time.
But franchise stability requires commitment from the team itself, as loyalty, like the Gandy Bridge, is a two-way street. Star power draws. The Phillies signed Bryce Harper and Andrew McCutchen this past offseason and drew 7, more fans per game in than in , even though the Phillies ended up being nowhere near as good as the Rays. Or consider the Lightning, who to be sure play in a smaller and more centrally located facility than the Rays do, but routinely spend to the salary cap limit and have made an effort to keep their winning core together.
The Edmonton Oilers won five Stanley Cups from to , and when they did trade Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier, for financial reasons, the franchise never recovered. Not only to win by sleight of hand, but to spend—either by pursuing the next high-level free agents or by refusing to let the next Price or Shields escape for monetary reasons. That would encourage fans to spend in return.

Teams follow similar tactical playbooks, and each new successful on-field innovation is replicated leaguewide in a matter of months. Even the stadiums and uniforms come from the same inoffensive templates. This organization of cast-offs, with its outdated ballpark and tiny home city, play and sell the game like nobody else. Baseball will be a more beautiful sport if the Rays continue to scrape by.
