Major League Baseball’s executive council granted the Tampa Bay Rays permission to look into options for the team to split its home games in future seasons between the Tampa Bay area and Montreal.
Right now the plan is in very early stages, but due to the lack of attendance the team is exploring the idea of beginning the season in Tampa and finishing it in Montreal. The Rays currently have an average attendance of 14,546, the second lowest in MLB. This comes despite a current record of 43-31, second place in a stacked American League East.
