The Tampa Bay Rays, who have been exploring locations for a new stadium, are expected by Hillsborough County Commissioner Ken Hagan to announce their support for a proposed location in Hillsborough County.
Last year, the team was handed a proposal by a group of property owners in the Ybor City area that could be a new stadium site. Bordered by Channeslide Drive, Adamo Drive, 15th Street and 4th Avenue, the 14 acres is located in an area the Tampa Bay Rays were expected to be considering for a possible move.
An announcement could come as early as Friday. The move is possible if the team can find enough corporate support for season tickets and financing for the stadium.
