Look: Lights go out during game at Tropicana Field

Tropicana Field struck again during Sunday’s game between the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees.

With the Yankees leading 3-1 in the top of the ninth, the stadium lights suddenly went dark, and only emergency power kept the building from being plunged into complete darkness.

Fans used cell phones to try to light up the stadium to no avail.

To make matters worse, minutes after the lights went out, the sound system followed, leading to the Rays’ departure from the field as the game was forced into a delay.

The Rays’ home stadium has often been criticized for its strange ground rules and configuration. Not being able to keep the lights on isn’t exactly helpful, either.
