PRO-STADIUM: Gov. Charlie Crist and MLB president Bob DuPuy made a pitch for the Rays' planned new stadium during the Governor's Baseball Dinner at the stadium they hope to leave, Tropicana Field. "We'll get it done," DuPuy said. Most of the 18 teams that train in Florida were represented, with guests including Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, actor Bill Murray and managers Dusty Baker, Jim Leyland, Maddon and John Russell.
