  • Rays Exploring Splitting Home Games Between Tampa Bay and Montreal

    In their search for ways to boost attendance, the Tampa Bay Rays have looked into splitting time between Florida and Canada.

    Per ESPN.com's Jeff Passan, Major League Baseball's executive council has granted the Rays permission to explore a plan that would allow them to start the season playing home games in Tampa Bay and finish their home schedule in Montreal.

    MLB commissioner Rob Manfred confirmed the Rays have been granted permission to explore the plan, per MLB.com's Mark Feinsand.

    Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg issued a statement about the situation: "My priority remains the same, I am committed to keeping baseball in Tampa Bay for generations to come. I believe this concept is worthy of serious exploration."

    Passan noted the plan is still in the "nascent stages" and that "significant hurdles" remain before the Rays' plan can be put into action.

    There would be potential benefits for the Rays and MLB in the event they can get approval for the two-city idea.

    It's pretty bad if you're looking to Montreal to increase your fan base.

      Passan added the Rays' plan would include new stadiums in Tampa Bay and Montreal.
