The Rays have added two new features to The Trop this year in honor of the home runs hit by Dan Johnson and Evan Longoria in Game 162 last season. First is the seat pictured below which will be white unlike the standard blue seats seen at The Trop. This is where Johnson’s home run landed (via @AaronCohn).

In addition, the Rays have also created a mini-monument in the left field corner where Longo’s playoff-clinching home run landed. That spot will be open to the public.

    This white seat will forever commemorate that guy getting hit in the junk by that ball.

    I still demand a Rocky-esque bronze statue of Dan Johnson outside Gate 1.

    • Sarah says:

      Maybe in that poor fan's honor, the special seat should feature some kind of crotch protector.

  2. maggie says:

    Paint the "Pumpkin Pole" orange.

    Hey, one of my predictions came true (save for the color of the seat)! Take that @MandaGator! lol
