Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reported Sunday that the Rays are exploring a blue-tinted ceiling for Tropicana Field, the indoor stadium they call home:
Per Topkin, the blue ceiling would accomplish two objectives: improve gameplay (i.e. fewer balls lost in the white ceiling and lights)and "provide a more natural look."
However, MLB still needs to approve the proposed changes. League officials will pay a visit to the Trop on Monday.
"Initial reviews from players and coaches seemed positive, though most said they would need to see more, and how it looks at night," he wrote.
Here's a video from Rays Reporter Josh Tolentino from the outside in St. Pete looking over at The Trop during the lighting!
