OPEN PALMS: In Florida, Thomas Himes reported Lee County officials "hope to pack City of Palms Park with a redevelopment pitch" to the Nationals. The franchise "became a free agent" after Osceola County commissioners threw out the team’s hopes for a new stadium. Lee County "can’t afford to upgrade the Fort Myers venue," but County Manager Roger Desjarlais said that he is "hopeful financing this time around can be found in plans to redevelop the neighborhood surrounding the ballpark." The Nationals "may be more willing to play ball" after Osceola County's decision on Monday. The team's lease to play at Space Coast Stadium in Brevard County expires in '17 (Ft. Myers NEWS-PRESS, 8/21).
