Winning Can Be Persuasive

May 13th, 2008 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist says the Tampa Bay Rays are making a good case for a new stadium. The Rays are off to a good start, currently at second in the American League East. The franchise is negotiating with St. Petersburg for a new stadium. Governor Crist says winning can be persuasive.

Theres an old expression in baseball and sports generally, the best promotion is a winning team. Theyre winning, so I certainly wouldnt think that would hurt them, said Crist.

The Rays want to build a 450 million dollars stadium on the waterfront.
