Rays advisor on Montreal plan: ‘This is real’

A plan to split Rays home games between St. Petersburg, Fla., and Montreal in the next decade is still on track, according to Canadian businessman and Rays advisor Stephen Bronfman.

“This is real,” Bronfman told TSN 690. “This is the year we’re going to prove this thing out.”

Bronfman shared his idea to have the Rays spend half the year in Montreal on Thursday, taking a shot at St. Petersburg in the process.

“Say the shift [to Montreal] happens second week of June, mid-June,” Bronfman said. “School season is over. Family moves up, they move to Montreal for the summer. Wives are happy. Much nicer city to be in than St. Petersburg, please. Much more cosmopolitan. Much more fun.”
