The Devil Rays have ended discussions with Altamonte Springs, FL, over a potential $20M spring training complex. The club will explore nine other sites in FL and AZ (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 2/15)....Phoenix's Bank One Ballpark will cost $20M more than expected, according to the Maricopa County Stadium District. Diamondbacks Owner Jerry Colangelo said the team, not taxpayers, will cover added costs (USA TODAY, 2/15).... Rumors that the March 16 opening of the $130M Molson Centre would be delayed because of the use of unauthorized building materials were unfounded (MONTREAL GAZETTE, 2/15).
