After Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano was robbed of a home run by Tropicana Field on Friday, Fox Sports North announcer Bert Blyleven called for the demolition of the Tampa Bay Rays' stadium.

"Blow up this place," the Hall of Famer joked(?)as the game went to commercial break.

With the game tied at three in the top of the eighth, Sano hit a towering fly ball to left field that likely would have been a home run in any other stadium. The  ball hit a speaker attached to the roof of the dome and stayed in fair territory, allowing Rays shortstop Wil;y Adames to catch it for the final out of the inning.

According to the stadium's ground rules, if a batted ball hits that area and stays in fair territory, the ball is in play.

It's not the first time that Sano has been robbed by the ballpark. In 2015, he hit another would-be homer off the catwalk, only to have it fall for an RBI double.

The Rays have called Tropicana Field home since the club's inception in 1998. It is consistently considered one of the worst stadiums in the league.
