Braves Weighing Future Spring Training Options As Disney Lease Ends In '17

SPRING CLEANING: In Ft. Lauderdale, Andy Reid notes the Palm Beach County Commission yesterday "gave its endorsement to trying to craft a deal" with the Astros and Nationals that "could include building" a $100M Spring Training facility for both teams. The county already has a publicly financed Spring Training ballpark, Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, that houses the Marlins and Cardinals. Supporters of a new venue "contend that landing more teams would help insure that spring training continues in Southeast Florida." Early plans call for the teams to pay 5-10% of construction costs (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 3/12).
