Rays, company call off spring stadium name

The Rays and The Mosaic Company are calling off a stadium naming rights deal for Tampa Bay's spring training home in Port Charlotte.

The deal brought controversy because of environmental concerns surrounding the company, which is "the world's leading producer of concentrated phosphate and potash crop nutrients." It would have brought more than $1.4 million to Charlotte County over the next 15 years, according to a Rays release.
