Tropicana Field is a dump and the Rays really need a new baseball stadium with a retractable roof so they can take advantage of the Florida sunshine.
But owner Stu Sternberg and his staff have done a nice job fixing up the old place. The Trop now has a new FieldTurf surface. Giants Stadium is the only other pro facility with the stuff.
There’s also a huge (35 x 64) new video board in right field and a party area in left field complete with a sandbar.
