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).
