Montreal not close to starting on new stadium amid Rays discussions
The chatter about the Tampa Bay Rays potentially spending part of their season in Montreal has been a big talking point around baseball over the last week, but it’s not close to happening.
On Wednesday, the leaders of the group seeking to bring baseball to Montreal said they are roughly nine months away from being able to start on stadium construction as they sort through the plans for the stadium, the Rays’ intentions, and MLB’s approval.
Montreal group leaders say at media session there they have “a lot of work to do,” about 9 months worth, to explore #Rays plan and stadium details and would want to get to ahead from MLB before starting on stadium construction
