The Ballpark

Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay, Florida, is a unique and notable baseball stadium, serving as the home of the Tampa Bay Rays. With a seating capacity of over 25,000, it's one of the few remaining domed stadiums in Major League Baseball, featuring a fixed, translucent roof that shields players and fans from the Florida weather. The stadium's interior is known for its quirky features, including the famous "Rays Tank," an aquarium containing live rays located just beyond the right-center field wall.

The field itself, with artificial turf, offers a distinct playing experience. Architecturally, Tropicana Field combines functional design with a festive, family-friendly atmosphere, offering various fan zones and interactive areas. Despite its unconventional features, the stadium has a dedicated fan base and plays a significant role in Tampa Bay's sports culture.
