Tropicana Field was the first park to open in March, beating Arizona’s Chase Field by a few hours. At the time it was the earliest a new park had opened, but was eclipsed by Washington’s Nationals Park when it hosted its first game on 3/30/2008.; Only nine games separated the first no-hitter thrown at Tropicana Field from the most recent, the smallest gap between no-hitters among active parks.
