ST. PETERSBURG [url=][/url ] , Fla. (AP) — Field by more than 5,000 seats as part of renovations and capital improvements to the domed stadium for the upcoming season.The team announced Friday that the entire upper deck will be closed, trimming seating to an estimated 25,000-26,000. That’s down from 31,042, which already was the smallest capacity in the major leagues.Tampa Bay finished next to last in attendance in 2018 at 14 [url=]Ryan Rua Jersey[/url] ,258 per game. The Miami Marlins (10,013) were the only team in the majors that drew fewer fans.The announcement comes about a month after the Rays announced they were abandoning plans to build a new ballpark in the Ybor City neighborhood in Tampa.The team says it has invested more than $50 million in stadium renovations since 2005, including more than $15 million in the past two years.In addition to creating a more intimate setting for fans, the latest project will include creation of a premium seating area that’ll be known as the Left Field Ledge, as well as installation of new artificial turf and energy-efficient LED lights throughout the stadium.“These renovations mark our continued commitment to providing a first-rate fan experience at Tropicana Field,” Rays President Matt Silverman said. “Together, in concert with the reduction in seating capacity [url=]Drew Robinson Jersey[/url] , these investments will help create a more intimate, entertaining and appealing experience for our fans.” TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Masahiro Tanaka wants to keep on hitting and running the bases at NL ballparks, hoping use of the designated hitter does not spread to the National League.The New York Yankees pitcher missed a month last season after hurting both hamstrings while running the bases during a June 8 game at the New York Mets.The players’ association has proposed extending the DH to the NL, a plan baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred says is too complex to consider for this year.“I did get injured, but when you look at it I grew up where baseball was played by nine guys, meaning basically the pitcher would hit also [url=][/url ] , and I really enjoyed that baseball,” Tanaka said Tuesday through a translator at New York’s spring training complex.Despite winning 100 games last season, the Yankees still wound up second in the AL East behind Boston. The Red Sox beat the Yankees in the Division Series and went on to their fourth title in 15 seasons.“Boston had the upper hand last season but, hopefully, we’ll get together as a team and then we’ll take that spot this year,” Tanaka said.New York added starting pitcher James Paxton, reliever Adam Ottavino [url=][/url ] , infielder DJ LeMahieu and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki during the offseason.“It’s obviously a better team now,” Tanaka said. “The additions, it’s definitely going to help us out as a team. We have this good team now and I think that we have a real good chance of getting to where we want to be this year.”New York pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report Wednesday, a day before workouts start.
