NAMOLI DRAFTS LETTER TO MLB ASKING FOR RENOVATION EXTENSION
Published April 25, 1995
Devil Rays Owner Vince Namoli has indicated he is writing MLB to ask that the league push back their "fast-approaching deadline" for an agreement on renovations to the ThunderDome, according to David Rogers in this morning's ST. PETERSBURG TIMES. MLB had said earlier in the month that the "final package" to finance about $50M worth of improvements to the Dome had to be in place by April 30. However, the earliest the St. Petersburg City Council could complete action is May 9. The city council is expected to pass financing on the stadium renovations, which would be paid for by a penny increase in the Pinellas County tourist tax (David Rogers, ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, 4/25).
