Here's yet another sign that Tampa Bay is rounding the bases to a new beginning.

What's happening: The Ray Tank returns to Tropicana Field's outfield Wednesday, with the touch experience coming back on June 22.

What it means: The tank is just a small part of the tangible sense of returning to normal.

  • As we relearn our love language of touch, we'll hopefully learn not to take things like the slippery back of a stingray for granted.

Another Rays pandemic victory (you know, beyond the fact that they're the hottest team in baseball): Capacity at the Trop increased from 9,000 to 20,000 fansĀ on Tuesday.
