A Ducky's deck duck?
With 3B Evan Longoria one of the owners, it seemed like a logical connection for Ducky's sports lounge to have a presence in the Trop. That includes food service and sponsorship of the Ducky's deck area to the left of centerfield. It would seem there should be some kind of special deal when Longoria homers onto the deck, right? "I don't think we've gotten that far yet," Longoria joked. "Or we could have, and I don't know. … It's going to be cool to look out there and see that."
