Adam Ligore of the Boston Globe has written of Tropicana Field:It is a baseball diamond trapped inside a demented theme park, where catwalks hang and cowbells clang. Playing here feels weird for invaders. It feels like home for the Rays.
After the Rays beat the Red Sox on August 4 and 5, 2009 Adam Ligore of the Boston Globe wrote: Forgive the Red Sox if they were tempted to board their charter last night still wearing their uniforms, while the cowbells still rang in their ears and the fluorescent lights still stung their eyes. Forgive them if they ran from this place screaming. Forgive them for doing anything to leave behind Tropicana Field as fast as they could.
