As storm clears, Rays focus turns back to baseball | Tampa Bay Times

But they had a lot more important things to be relieved about, principally that with Hurricane Irma largely sparing the Tampa Bay area, their houses, families and friends all said to be safe.

Plus, they are likely to head home after Wednesday’s game to host the Red Sox as planned this weekend at the Trop.

A final decision is expected today, but after determining there was no major damage or flooding at the Trop and talking with St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman about staffing and public safety concerns, Rays president Brian Auld said he was “optimistic” the team will be able to play the Sox as planned starting Friday. The biggest hurdle may be whether traffic lights in the area are back on line.
