Topic - Tropicana Field
Tropicana Field is a domed stadium in St. Petersburg, Florida, which has been the home of Major League Baseball's Tampa Bay Rays since the team's inaugural season in 1998, when they were the Devil Rays. It has also served as the host stadium for the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl, an NCAA-sanctioned college football bowl game since December 2008. It is the only stadium in history to host full seasons of professional baseball, football, hockey and arena football, as well as college basketball and college football contests. It is currently the only non-retractable domed stadium in Major League Baseball. - Source: Wikipedia

J.A. Happ raised his glove in front of his face as quickly as he could, a futile attempt to shield himself from the line drive headed straight for his temple.
Baseball in September? Meh. When the season dwindles, fans of downtrodden teams need a reason to come to the ballpark beyond the game itself. Sometimes, that reason comes after the game.
Rain delay in the dome.
