Press Release

Proposed ballpark for Tampa Bay Rays

The location would be in Ybor City, just outside downtown Tampa.

| 7/10/2018

On Tuesday afternoon in Tampa, the MLB team Tampa Bay Rays announced their plans for a new ballpark. The new park would be in Tampa, right near downtown in Ybor City. The roof is translucent and fixed. The ballpark is estimated to cost $809 million, but with site work and infrastructure upgrades, the total cost would be $892 million. Financing has not been announced.

From the Tampa Bay Times:

The Rays today unveiled plans for an Ybor City stadium that has see-through sliding glass walls, a fixed translucent roof and is integrated into the neighborhood with an evolving design.

"It will provide a ballpark experience like no other," Rays executive Melanie Lenz said.

Principal owner Stuart Sternberg talked about the "ingenuity" involved in the design and seating concepts which include picnic, patio, table and fountain seating areas.

The stadium would seat 28,216 and, with standing areas, would hold 30,842.
