Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg

Tropicana Field, the home field of Tampa Bay Rays, is the only active dome-shaped Major League Baseball stadium with a fixed roof. It seats more than 31,000 people. Head to a huge tank filled with stingrays, an homage to the team's name, beyond the right center-field fence if you'd like to pet the creatures. Those more interested in the baseball aspect will want to take the behind-the-scenes tour, which offers access to the field, press box, and more. Check out the Ted Williams Museum and Hitters Hall of Fame, too. Though Williams was never a Tampa Bay Ray--he played for the Red Sox long before the Rays even became a team--the museum honors players with Williams' passion and talent for hitting. As you enter the stadium, note the tropical-theme mosaic: It is the fifth-longest outdoor mosaic in the United States.

  • I have never figured out why the national media keeps dissing the Trop. It's indoors, yes, but you can't play baseball outside in FL in the summer anyway. There is ample parking and you can bring some...  more »
  • Although many think Tropicana field needs a Reno, I love going there to watch a game. You can bring your own food (not drinks) and sit in a/c comfort not bothered by thunder and lightening outside.  more »
  • There's baseball for everyone and a lineup of entertaining innings breaks for the whole family. Following our taligate picnic at Tropicana field, we enjoyed cheering on the teams at the Rays/Jays seas...  more »

  • Easy to get to from the interstate, surrounded by booming downtown St. Pete, tons of affordable parking (lots within walking distance and lots with shuttles all over downtown). Staff is friendly. Restrooms are clean and there's one outside of every section. 72 degrees all the time - thank God!!!! Anyone who is dumb enough to say baseball should be played outdoors no matter, what never spent an hour in Florida during baseball season. Sit baking in oppressive 90 degree heat and boil under UV index 10 sun? Yeah. Don't think so. People are seeking A/C April through October. Good food choices and pretty decently priced for stadium food. People who complain about the prices must not get out much. Lots of activities for people who aren't there to watch the game. The one major issue is that the seats do not face home plate. If you're sitting along 1st or 3rd baseline, you have to twist in your seat in order to face the right direction. It's idiotic. Otherwise very enjoyable.
  • Well went to a FAST event held there. The parking was great across the street from gate 5 in lot 1. Easy access to the entrance. Everyone working there was very nice. I can't wait to go to a baseball game there. I am amazed at how small it is inside. I can see why they would like to have a new Stadium. I had no problem finding my group as I let them out and parked the car.
  • Visited for the Rays opening game. And found it wonderful. Seating prices are really good compared to most other major league ball parks I've been to. The parking prices are good as well and they let you park 4hrs before the game so you can visit the local area or tailgate. Good views of the field from almost every angle of the stadium. Food prices I felt were a little high, and beer was 8 dollars about average.
  • No wonder they don’t draw more fans. 1993 called they want their ‘Jumbotron’ back. Burgers stunk, but fish and chips were surprisingly good. $10 for 16 oz craft beers not too bad. Everyone that worked there was super friendly and helpful. Some things for kids to do around the park. Wouldn’t make it a point to go back. Baseball should be outdoors...
  • I love supporting the Rays and also love going to see them, but I've never been a fan of the stadium. Doesn't really feel like baseball. I truthfully enjoy Spectrum field in Clearwater much more enjoyable and it's a minor league Florida State League field. I sat in all areas of the field as it's usually not sold out and you can take your pick of different seats at certain times. I did enjoy the tank with the race also I sat behind the Rays Dugout a couple of times and that was a really fun time!
