Good News for Rays at Tropicana Field

The GOP Convention is coming to Tampa Bay in 2012 and Tropicana Field is expected to host some of the events. The good news for the Rays? Unlike the Astros in 1992, who had to endure a month-long road trip while the Astrodome hosted the event, the Trop will NOT be the main venue. That means an extended road trip should not be required since the GOP won't need to rip out and renovate seats and luxury boxes.

Then again, the team may be disappointed to miss that opportunity...

Oh, and don't look now, but the Rays are also getting good news at the gate. They're up to 19th in the majors in average attendance.
