Rays deem full season in Tampa unsustainable; want to split games with Montreal

Tampa Bay Rays president Chris Auld believes that having the team play a full season in St. Petersburg, Fla., is no longer sustainable.

“We’ve concluded that it’s next to impossible that full-season baseball can succeed in Tampa Bay today,” Auld told Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal while speaking addressing a crowd at the Café con Tampa speaker series.
