The Big Lead conducted a Q&A with Dick Vitale and asked him about the Rays ongoing fight for a new stadium…
I think there’s no doubt it would be great here if they built a modern stadium, but it gets down to dollars. And fan interest and putting people in the seats. I dont blame the owners – how you going to spend csh and you’re not getting people out? That becomes a domino effect. That becomes a problem. I think eventually we’ll get a new ballpark. I’m trying to be optimistic. with a new ballpark and the environment to make it so exciting to come. I mean, Yankee stadium is like a museum.
“Trying to be optimistic.” Ahhh, ’tis the life of a Rays fan.
