The Braves may be moving from their spring-training home of West Palm Beach to Orlando. In early discussions that "both TBS and Disney are trying to keep hush-hush," Disney is said to be interested in building the Braves a new spring training home on the Disneyworld grounds. The Braves also have an offer from Palm Beach County to move to a planned stadium in Jupiter, FL. Braves GM John Schuerholz confirmed "contact" between the Braves and Disney, but Disney Dir of Sports Marketing Reggie Williams would only say that they "would be flattered to talk to the Braves about something like that." A new $15M stadium at Disney could be ready by 1998, with the team moving to Orlando in the meantime and training at Tinker Field, former home of the Twins (I.J. Rosenberg, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 4/21).
