Recipient of the USA Today 2014 Readers' Choice Award for Best Spring Training Facility, Charlotte Sports Park is a state-of-the-art facility with a baseball boardwalk ringing the outfield, family-friendly kids play area, upgraded concession stands and a top-notch team store. The Rays Inaugural Spring Training Season in Charlotte County in 2009 featured record breaking crowds, as the Rays set a franchise record for single-season home attendance. During the 2014 Spring season, the attendance record was broken for the largest single game crowd at Charlotte Sports Park. As the 2015 Spring Training season approaches, the Rays look forward to another great year in Charlotte County. The Rays minor league affiliate, the Charlotte Stone Crabs, also call Charlotte Sports Park home. The Stone Crabs have hosted a Florida State League All-Star Game, and have earned three trips to the playoffs in their six seasons.
