The Tampa Bay Rays play in the dreadful Tropicana Field, which needs to stop being a baseball stadium because it’s so bad.
We know about the catwalks interfering with play, but that roof also makes matters difficult for fielders. It didn’t even take two games for The Trop to impact a baseball game.
During the third inning of the Rays’ game against the Yankees, Matt Holliday launched a deep fly ball to left field. The ball was well hit, but it hung in the air long enough that it should have been an easy out. Instead, Peter Bourjos had no idea where the ball was.
</div> <p>Now, that is a helpless feeling.</p> <p>Bourjos stayed put as he desperately tried to locate the ball. By the time he spotted it, the ball landed near the warning track.</p> <p>It’s difficult to tell whether the catwalk played a role or if the ball was lost in the roof. Either way, Holliday got himself an RBI double that he didn’t deserve.</p> <asset-embed uri=”http%3A%2F%2Flink.brightcove.com%2Fservices%2Fplayer%2Fbcpid2777811600001%3Fbckey%3DAQ%7E%7E%2CAAAABvaL8JE%7E%2CufBHq_I6FnylUhWkNSqL6V_zjIsdPuwc%26bctid%3D5385071799001%26autoStart%3Dfalse” /> </body></html>
