Rays Look To Move A Chunk Of Home Games To Montreal

Tropicana Field

The Tampa Bay Rays have received permission from the MLB to explore playing games in both Tampa Bay and Montreal, per Jeff Passan of ESPN:

The Tampa Bay Rays received permission from Major League Baseball's executive council to explore a plan in which they would play early-season home games in the Tampa Bay area and the remainder of the year in Montreal, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN. - Jeff Passan

This comes after years of failure in attempting to build a new stadium, most recently this past December when a $892 million plan to build a stadium in Ybor City fell through. The Rays have one of the lowest payrolls in the league and the second lowest attendance.
