The tarps have been pulled back and tickets have sold out for the final ALDS matchup between the Tampa Bay Rays and Texas Rangers.

Game 5 is set to begin Tuesday at 8:07 p.m. from the Trop. It will be broadcast on TBS and can be heard on 620 WDAE-AM.
Here's traffic and parking information from the Tampa Bay Rays:
Tampa Bay Rays fans are encouraged to "go mad for plaid" and cheer on the hometown team when they play their final deciding game against Texas in the American League division series playoffs on Tuesday at Tropicana Field. Fans will converge throughout downtown and the Dome District as the Rays try to advance in the 2010 Major League Baseball playoffs.
Motorists should allow enough time to arrive at the ballpark well before the first pitch and expect heavier than normal traffic before the game due to daily rush hour. To help ease traffic congestion getting to Tropicana Field, traffic officials suggest using southbound I-275, exiting at 54th, 38th, or 22nd Aves. N, and approaching the ballpark from the east using 4th St. Northbound motorists may also follow northbound I-275 and exit early at 31st St. S. (Exit 21), then follow 31st St. to Fifth Ave. S.
More than enough parking is available for fans attending playoff games: in Tropicana Field lots at $20 per vehicle; in private, approved lots, located around the stadium-lots clearly marked with signage featuring a blue "P" and lot number; or downtown along the waterfront.
Downtown parkers will find all-day parking available in the South Core garage for $5, accessible from First Ave. S.; elevators deliver fans right to the shuttle stop at Central Ave. and Second St. under the pedestrian overpass. If needed, variable message boards will direct overflow parking to the BayWalk garage, easily reached from Second St. between First and Second Aves. N. Parking is available at BayWalk for $1 per hour, up to a $6 daily maximum. For additional lot locations, fees and general baseball parking information, visit www.stpete.org/transportation/baseball_parking.asp.
Fans are encouraged to park downtown, grab a bite to eat, and take the free baseball shuttle to Tropicana Field to avoid traffic delays. Shuttles begin running two hours prior to each game, ending service one hour after the final inning. Fans may catch the free shuttles, which run approximately every five to 10 minutes, from Second St. between Central Ave. and First Ave. S., under the pedestrian bridge, with drop-off on 16th St., just south of Third Ave. S. Disability accommodations, including vehicles with wheelchair lifts, will be utilized at each playoff game. Information and a printable shuttle route map may be found at www.stpetetrolley.com/Events.html.
