Rays Want To Explore Developer CityScape's Ballpark Proposal

The Rays today said that they are "interested in exploring a private developer's proposal for a new stadium in mid Pinellas County," provided the city of St. Petersburg "also allows them to negotiate with other interested parties on possible sites in Hillsborough County." In a letter to St. Pete Mayor Bill Foster, Rays Owner Stuart Sternberg "proposed that the city and team amend" the contract for the team to remain at Tropicana Field through '27. The letter also promises that the Rays "begin their stadium search by holding detailed discussions" with developer CityScape (TAMPA BAY TIMES, 10/11).
