Earlier in 2008, the Tampa Bay Rays combined with the baseball gurus at the Ripken Baseball Group to coordinate a Spring Training and Florida State League ( Class-A) entry in the newly developed Charlotte Sports Park. The facility will be the Rays major league complex site along with the newly formed Charlotte Sand Crabs, which will occupy the stadium after Spring Training is over.



The Sand Crabs will be taking over a completely remodeled stadium that will feature a 360 degree viewing and walking venue around the new stadium. In left field will be a featured tiki bar that will be open on game days.


Amenities which include sports lighting on all fields, upgraded concessions/restrooms/press box, new scoreboards, increased seating, re-sodding of all fields, and an on-site restaurant will improve the opportunities to host local, regional, and national events throughout the months of April-January when the Rays do not have exclusive use of the park



As with any team starting their existence in a new location, the Sand Crabs will be unvealing their new looks and logos tomorrow at the Port Charlotte Town Center Mall on Wednesday, December 17, 2008 from 5 p.m.
