My husband and I love baseball and have been to many major league games. Since moving to Florida I had yet made it up to St. Petersburg to watch the Rays play. The Seattle Mariners were in town over Memorial Day so we headed to a game with our son and his family. We had a great time despite a disappointing loss. I took my camera along in hopes of getting some shots in to fill some of the remaining themes for the 52 week challenge. This shot could have been taking in every section of the stadium, rows and rows of empty blue seats. I have to say I was shocked at how few fans were there. Tropicana Stadium hold 40,473 people, there were barely 10,000 fans in attendance. That is just down right embarrassing. This area has no idea how lucky they are to have a professional baseball team here. Living in Iowa we had to travel either to Minneapolis, Chicago, Kansas City or St.Louis all either 3 to 7 hours away to go to a professional game. How fortunate we are to have a field within an hour of our home. The Rays actually have a decent record this season, they are only one game behind the Yankees. Too bad I used “Its a Mystery” for my post last week I could have used it this week too.
