New Rays Stadium in Mid-Pinellas County?

Would you attend more Tampa Bay Rays games at the proposed location in Carillon Park than the one at Tropicana Field?

A local developer has pitched a plan to build a new stadium for the Tampa Bay Rays at Carillon Park, in the Feather Sound area.

The Ulmerton Road location appears to be a shorter commute for Rays fans who live in Hillsborough County and middle and northern Pinellas County, including Dunedin.

Old Northeast-Downtown St. Pete Patch reported that Steven Kurcan, project manager with CityScape, says the location of a stadium plays a big factor when it comes to fans attending games. MLB said a stadium has to be within a 30-minute drive of a stadium to be successful, Kurcan explained.

The proposal also includes adding retail, restaurants and entertainment (read the details).

So, what do you think of the Rays moving north to Carillon Park?
