10 years later, Devil Rays have a sign

Bob Andelman of EmailTheRays.com has been calling for a sign indicating the Devil Rays play in the stadium for years:

Naimoli & Co. still doesn't have a sign hanging anywhere on the outside of Tropicana Field that says "Home of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays." No logo, no flashing sign that says "Game Tonight: Yankees vs. Rays; Good Seats Still Available!" If your business fronted an Interstate highway with the biggest blank wall in town, wouldn't you put your company's name on it?
Finally, a sign has arrived.
The Tampa Bay Devil Rays and the city of St. Petersburg erected an electronic messaging board last Friday in the parking lot of the 15-year-old dome adjacent to the interstate.
