The Rays are planning a media event for Tuesday in Ybor City in which they are expected to present design renderings of the proposed new stadium and some information regarding costs.

That will be a significant step as most of the discussion to this point has been theoretical and prelimary, including total costs and what share the team may pay.

The Rays are facing a year-end deadline to let St. Petersburg officials know if they plan to exercise an out clause in the use agreement that expires in 2027.

Principal owner Stuart Sternberg told the Times last month he expected to be able to meet the deadline, and this would be a step in that direction.
