What I like about baseball is to see the pitcher strike out the hitters. I like to see the hitters hit the ball out of the park, and I like to see the players steal bases because it shows how fast the players are.

I think the Rays are doing good. I like how they are starting off the season. I hope as the season goes on, the Rays will become better and better. I like how The Dome changed to Tropicana Field. I see nothing wrong with Tropicana Field. I think a nice job was done with Tropicana Field. By the way, I like the name "Tropicana Field." The food there is good. I have not found anything in my food. The staff there are very nice. The best place to sit is in the outfield, so when the players hit a home run, I can look for a baseball in my lap.

Devil Rays

When you go to a baseball game, what do you look forward to,

To eat hot dogs and popcorn and Cracker Jack, too.

To hear the roar of the crowd and the crack of the bat,

If you want to hear that, Tropicana Field is where it's at.

If you want excitement and you want to have fun,

Go to Tropicana Field, if you have to just run!

If you don't have any tickets, don't feel left out,

Just go out and say or shout, "Go Devil Rays," that's what it's all about.

If you can't make it to the game, don't give up.

Just turn on the TV and watch them tear the other team up.

When teams hear that they have to play the Devil Rays,

They shake and shiver all through the days.

So when you see they have a game in the St. Pete Times,

Just get to the game and pass all those signs.

No matter if they win or lose and how hard it seems,

Support the Devil Rays, for they're the home team!
