Catwalk costs Tampa Bay Rays AL East Lead: The Tropicana Field catwalks cost the Tampa Bay Rays a game Thursday along with first place in the American League East. The Minnesota Twins won 8-6 after a Jason Kubel infield fly in the ninth inning struck a catwalk 190 feet above the field and fell for a hit. The catwalks and other obstructions in the Tropicana roof are in play, one of the quirkiest quirks in the Major Leagues. "Blow this place up and get it right next time," writes Tampa Tribune columnist Joe Henderson. "A fitting major league stadium can still have the things people like about the Trop (air conditioning) without having play affected by some man-made erector set that dangles above the playing surface."
