It happened again last night. It happened when I went to a Rays game last year.
Part of the lighting went out at Tropicana Field as the Rays played Toronto, causing a half and hour delay. Some fans even reported that lightning may have hit the indoor baseball facility, causing a bank of lights to go out.
We’re the only dome to my knowledge where the weather outside seems to have an effect on what’s supposed to be a weather-free facility.
The culprit always seems to be a power station called the 16th Street substation, not too far from the dome known as the Trop in St. Petersburg.
Since this always seems to happen, might the powers that be in town want to get this problem fixed somehow sometime this century? Just a thought.
