We talked about The Rays last week and their deadline fast approaching to make the commitment regarding plans to move to a new stadium in Ybor City.
And as reported by ABC Action News, The Rays are not close at all to the Ybor City stadium deal, as the three-year window to look for new venues closes. The Tampa Bay Rays will likely be stuck at Tropicana Field through 2027 when the team’s lease ends.
With regards to the Ybor ballpark, President Brian Auld said nothing is off the table at this point, but the absolute earliest the Rays could be in a new ballpark is 2024.
