Rays adding walkways, fan meeting spot to Trop



The Rays are making a major renovation to Tropicana Field, creating 360-degree circulation by adding walkways behind the outfield seating areas and opening up what was the dark-walled Batters Eye restaurant into an open-air meeting spot for fans.

The concept appeara similar to what exists at their Port Chartlotte spring stadium, which has a boardwalk behind the outfield and a centerfield tiki bar.

Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg would not confirm any specifics, but acknowledged the project was underway and said Tuesday night at the GM/owners meetings in Orlando, "We continue to invest significant dollars to create the best fan experience at Tropicana Field we possibly can.''
