On February 8 2018 — News emerges that the Tampa Bay Rays have settled on a site in Ybor City, FL, one of Tampa, FL’s most historic neighborhoods, as the location for a new ballpark to replace the inadequate Tropicana Field. However, the team will fail to obtain the necessary authorizations and financing before construction starts, and the project will fall through within a few months.
The Giants sign LF Pat Burrell to a one-year contract. Burrell’s career was revived with the Giants over the second half of last year after a disastrous year-and-a-half as Tampa Bay’s designated hitter.

In Toronto’s 9 – 3 win over Montreal, Jays rookie Cesar Izturis hits his first major league homer inside the park, thanks to Expos LF Mark Smith losing the ball in the lights. Smith gets a glove on it, but Izturis beats the relay throw from Orlando Cabrera, who also hit his first homer inside-the-park. The win goes to 30-year-old rookie Chris Michalak (6-6), who will be waived next month and picked up by Texas.
