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.
