They finally have a good product for people to see, so I think their attendence will improve a ton. I think they will atleast average 20 to 25 thousand per game next season. The only problem with Rays fans is that a lot of Rays fans don't live in St.Pete. They are having to drive from Tampa, Clearwater, Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs, Sarasota, Ocala.
If the Trop were located in the heart of Tampa, I think they would naturally draw better. Everybody seems to make fun of the Trop, but I like the Trop. The Trop can get loud & gives the Rays a great homefield advantage when the fans show up. Moreover, it is a comfortable place to watch a baseball game. The only thing the Tampa organization needs to do is to replace the field, but the Trop is just fine. MORE COWBELL!
