Tampa Mayor meets with Tampa Bay Rays. Mayor Jane Castor had a meeting that included a discussion on a possible new stadium for the Tampa Bay Rays.

Tampa Bay Rays principal owner Stu Sternberg met with Mayor Castor and discussed what was described as a ‘broad discussion,’ according to the Mayor’s communications director Adam Smith.

The discussion about a new stadium site hasn’t changed. The former KForce headquarters in Ybor City is still the focus for a location. There’s no word on whether discussions included the plan of splitting the season between games in the Tampa Bay area and games in Montreal.

The location is surrounded by East 7th Avenue, Nuccio Parkway, Palm Avenue and Nebraska Avenue.

The video below comes from back when the Rays were in the playoffs. It explains how the project may look to the State of Florida to help fund the changes needed in infrastructure, possibly to the tune of $21 million.
