Tuesday's match against the Toronto Blue Jays at Tropicana Field only took 5,786 fans – a record low for a franchise played in its 22nd season. Earlier attendance was 6,509, but it came as Tampa prepared to hit Hurricane Irma in 201 7 and many were forced to evacuate the region. This time there is no such excuse for such a bad crowd – except that you know that the rays are largely overlooked and The Trop is a pile of garbage. There was no natural disaster. It wasn't one of those mid-week afternoons starting (the first collision was at 7:10 pm). It was not a random matchup (Toronto is a division rival).

Tampa Bay The rays had a historically low fan swing during a game of the week, and it says a lot considering that the rays typically end near the bottom of the league’s presence each year.

Tuesday’s match against the Toronto Blue Jays at Tropicana Field only took 5,786 fans – a record low for a franchise played in its 22nd season. Earlier attendance was 6,509, but it came as Tampa prepared to hit Hurricane Irma in 201

Earlier I referred to The Trop as “gloomy, ugly and a prison of misery” and personally approved the burning spot to the ground. Now it would be a good time to do so because nobody is inside.
