Florida Gov. Pitches $5M Additional Annual Funding For MLB Spring Training Facilities
Published March 1, 2013
GRAPEFRUIT VS. CACTUS: MLB.com's Jason Beck noted six MLB teams since '98 have "moved their Spring Training facilities to Arizona: White Sox ('98), Royals (2003), Rangers ('03), Dodgers ('09), Reds ('09) and Indians ('09)." Florida and Arizona are home to 15 teams apiece, and with "each Spring Training agreement that nears expiration for a team, speculation begins anew that Florida or Arizona will try to lure a team from the other state and bring its team total to an even number" (MLB.com, 2/27).
