Stadium Financing Newsbeat

Saturday, February 09, 2019

Commissioner says MLB is open to new Rays stadium in St. Petersburg

The Brinks truck wasn’t big enough.

Manfred said he was “disappointed” the Rays and Tampa leaders couldn’t work out a deal for the Ybor site by the Dec. 31 expiration of the “free look” agreement. He sent a strongly worded letter to Hillsborough officials pointing out how their offer was incomplete in advance of the Rays announcing in December that they were ending talks.
