He reminded me alot of Dale Murphy(former Atlanta Braves slugger). Ironically, they have the same jersey number(3). Glad he didnít go to a team in the same division.

Rays president says team will evaluate Ybor option - Story | FOX 13 Tampa Bay

This following is exciting news for Rays fans, and it had been previously speculated. Now, it could appear definite. The powers that be appear to have settled on a new ballpark site in Tampa, and people are getting on board with this, including yours truly. A new yard is planned for the Ybor district in Tampa, and it seems they'll get some support for it. Hopefully, a 2022 or '23 opening. Here's the link....

it'll be interesting to see who'll pay for it - I'm pretty sure Hillsborough Tax Payers will give it the thumbs down if they had to vote on authorizing a sales tax increase

This is good news...

I guess I will be cautiously optimistic?

Hopefully, that can be agreed on and worked out. But I've looked at Google maps and really like the location. I think a lot more fans in the area will just eat it up. Plus, I've got a co-worker who's a die-hard Rays fan, and he's definitely on board with the plans.

It will take more than a new park to get Florida fans to turn out. In 2011, the Marlins last year in Sun Life Park, they drew 1,520,562. In 2012, the first year in Marlins Park, they jumped to 2,219,444, but the following season it was back down to 1,586,322. In the four seasons since they have averaged about 1,750,00. That works out to around 3000 more a game over the old venue.

There are a huge variety of reasons why people in FL do and dont attend games. And it's really not a sacred or revered sport as much as it is in other areas of the country.

After a 4-12 start the Rays have turned things around going 11-5

Six players have OBP's ranging from .344 to .439.

Things are looking up!
