Rays Want Out: Steinberg’s Letter To The Mayor

Posted By Sports Talk Florida On October 11, 2012 @ 1:33 PM In Florida News,main feature,MLB | No Comments

St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster got a response from his letter to the Tampa Bay Rays but it wasn’t the response he was looking for.

The Rays’ owner Stuart Steinberg responded to the mayor’s Gateway/Carillon baseball stadium proposal with his own letter and a request to amend the lease at Tropicana Field. Steinberg would also like to explore other options in Hillsborough County as well.

The Rays have a lease with Tropicana Field through 2027 and are blocked from negotiating a new stadium deal with anyone outside of Pinellas County.
