In response to Ice-Cream's comment:
I agree with you-it's the park we go to see.
Not to sound bias, but I believe that Fenway Park is the most beautiful baseball stadium I have ever been to.
Have any of you been to Tropicana Field? It looks depressing. No wonder the Rays were last in attendence. lol
I just moved back here from the Tampa area where I was living for the last few years.
The trop has a cave-like atmosphere. It is the most obnoxious stadium Ive ever been to, and Ive been to a few.
They would probably attract many more fans if they moved it to Hillsborough county (which is across the bridge, out of St.Pete) and built a whole new state of the art stadium. There are more businesses in the downtown Tampa area and could have more cooperate outlets for tix sales.
Most fans do not want to travel to a bad part of town over the bridge to watch a team play in a cave.
Even if they just moved the location (while staying in the same county) and built the new stadium, I think more people would attend games.
I agree with your idea! :)
I went to a Red Sox vs. Rays game back in 2010 and only around 10,000 fans showed up. There was no line at the bathroom!!! LOL
