Expect to see more of Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg around town and the Trop.

We’ve heard that Sternberg recently bought a home in St. Petersburg and plans to spend more time in the area.

That coincides with the increased focus and urgency on resolving the search for a new stadium site and other business matters involving the team.

But also from the personal side, as he and his wife, Lisa, are empty-nesters at their New York home, with the youngest of their four children now in college. One son, Sandy, works for the Rays.

Sternberg declined to comment on the move.
