The rays’ common storage plan between the Tampa and Montreal area is so serious that a banner promoting it will be displayed on one of the walls at Tropicana Field during the playoffs.
“We want to add a poster in ugly territory near the right field,” team president Matt Silverman told This Week in Rays Baseball.
“In October, the eyes of the region will be on baseball, so we will make our plan visible and show that we are feverish,” he added. This subtly shows our efforts, because we also want to focus on winning [sur le terrain]. “
Yesterday, Le Journal reported that an important announcement about the return of Major League Baseball to Montreal would be given in the coming weeks, after the municipal elections on November 7.
The elected representatives in the Tampa region are also many to follow the principle of shared custody that the rays require.
Including Tampa Mayor Jane Castor, who has said she is ready to welcome the part-time team to a new stadium if the Rays fail to build a new home in St. Petersburg, where they currently play.
In Montreal in June
According to Rays’ plan, the team would play in the Tampa area during training camp and through early June.
The rest of the season was to be played in Montreal. Playoff games – including the World Series – would change city to city, reports the Tampa Bay Times.
“We believe in our sister city plan. MLB also believes in that, Silverman added. This is the best and possibly our only chance for Major League Baseball to be here for generations. ”
