    “Team President Matt Silverman had announced on a podcast Saturday that the Rays would make a “subtle” statement by erecting a sign that had “a very simple Tampa Bay Montreal graphic.” The reference was to the team’s stated intention of splitting seasons, starting in 2028, between Tampa Bay and Montreal. Under the plan, both cities would build new open-air ballparks. The Rays will play in Tampa Bay through June 15, and then beat a hasty retreat to Montreal for the rest of the season, thereby avoiding the hot weather in Florida. Principal owner Stuart Sternberg appeared on Tuesday’s Rays radio pre-game show. As quoted in the Tampa Bay Times, Sternberg said: “I’m really here to speak directly to our fans today. And to apologize, quite frankly. Sternberg has said many times that the shared-custody plan is the only way to keep major league baseball in the Tampa Bay area.”
