Tampa Bay Not Receiving Much Support From Home Crowds, Giving Tropicana Field Bad Reputation (Video)


The Tampa Bay Rays are in the hunt for a playoff spot, but you wouldn’t know it judging by the fan atmosphere on Tuesday.

Despite a giveaway of bright neon t-shirts, the Rays didn’t draw much of a crowd for their game against the Red Sox, which ended up being quite a competitive one. With the team in need of every advantage it can find going down the stretch, but with an announced crowd of only 11,502, they don’t seem to be getting much of one at Tropicana Field.

NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette asked out Twitter followers for their thoughts on some of the more notorious ballparks around the league. See what they had to say in the above video.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
