Rays Finish Last In MLB Attendance
The Rays average turnout this season, 18,646 fans per night, probably will strengthen their argument that life at Tropicana Field is unsustainable and that they should be allowed to look around the region for a new ballpark. For now, no one expects any movement on the issue until St. Petersburg elects its next mayor on Nov. 5.
I think if we have a new mayor well likely begin negotiations again and get something that finally moves the ball forward, said St. Petersburg City Council Chairman Karl Nurse, who has endorsed mayoral challenger Rick Kriseman over incumbent Bill Foster.
