Sports Park gets a facelift with new electronic scoreboard and welcomes Tampa Bay Rays

Charlotte County Stadium was home to spring training for the Texas Rangers for over fifteen years. When the Rangers left, it also left the ballpark stadium without quite a bit of income. Since it was rather old and desperately in need of upgrades, the stadium was redone and welcomed the Tampa Bay Rays.

Port Charlotte is a lovely Florida town in between Tampa and Ft Myers. It has experienced spurts of growth that have gradually expanded it into a small little big town. When the Rangers departed the Charlotte County Stadium, seeking bigger facilities, the authorities of Charlotte County Stadium realized they had to do something about the condition of their stadium to bring in the bigger teams.
