West Palm Approves Site Plan for NatStros Spring Training Complex

Tom McNicholas, a representative for the teams, told the city commission the teams could not accept the conditions that city staff wanted. He said it will cost the teams $20 million to clear and prepare the 160-acre site, a former landfill south of 45th Street between Haverhill Road and Military Trail. “When we tell you we are having budget issues and we are running into problems, we really mean it,’’ he said.

Poor little rich kid. But it was unanimous vote so the teams have spent well up to this point.

Nationals, Astros WPB Spring Training Site Approved

Monday morning, Scott made the change officially official with a bill-signing ceremony held with Nationals and Astros representatives on hand, an acknowledgement of the return of Spring Training baseball to West Palm Beach for the first time since the Braves and Expos left decades ago. That the Astros and Nationals will move to Palm Beach County — if all stays on schedule — means there will be five teams within a 30-minute drive of one another on the east coast of Florida, a good sign for the health of the Grapefruit League, which requires more travel than the Cactus League in Arizona
