Video: Randal Grichuk misplay turns into inside-the-park homer for Avisaíl García

Tropicana Field influenced a misjudgment from Blue Jays right fielder Randal Grichuk, leading to an inside-the-park solo home run for White Sox DH Avisaíl García in the bottom of the third inning Tuesday night. Ahead two balls and no strikes against Clayton Richard, García popped up a fastball to shallow right field. García hung his head in disappointment for not hitting the ball well. Grichuk lost the ball in Tropicana Field’s roof. The ball ended up dropping some 30 feet behind him, bouncing all the way to the fence in the right field corner. García came all the way around to score, boosting the Rays’ lead to 2-0. They would go on to win 3-1.

Tropicana Field is frequently the cause of baseball’s stranger plays. Along with players losing track of the baseball in the white roof, fly balls have been known to strike speakers and catwalks. The ground rules for the Rays’ digs are interesting, to say the least.

I’d suggest painting the roof, but Rays management has a different goal in mind….
