Mesa Reaches 20-Year Deal To Host A's For Spring Training
The A's and the city of Mesa, Ariz., have reached a 20-year deal for the team to move its Spring Training home to the city beginning in February '15. The deal includes two five-year options for the A's to further extend the contract to as much as 30 years. The team will conduct workouts at Fitch Park and play preseason games at Hohokam Stadium. The two facilities are slated for a combined $20M in renovations next year after the Cubs vacate the ballpark. The A's previously held their Spring Training in Mesa from '69-78 (A's).
