Crist and Baker to attend stadium announcement
The Rays will have Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker on hand for the Nov. 28 official announcement of their plans for a new stadium at the current site of Al Lang Field.
MLB President Bob DuPuy, who usually handles such matters for commissioner Bud Selig, will also attend.
The Rays will be represented by principal owner Stuart Sternberg, team president Matt Silverman and senior VP Michael Kalt, the point man in negotiations for the stadium.
The Rays plan to "announce details and renderings of a new waterfront ballpark and redevelopment of Tropicana Field.''
