More tourist coming our way....

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Five spring training sites received $15 million grants as part of Florida's campaign to keep Major League Baseball in the Sunshine State.

Getting the matching grants for ballpark improvements Tuesday were Sarasota (Cincinnati Reds), Bradenton (Pittsburgh Pirates), Fort Lauderdale (Baltimore Orioles), Charlotte County (Tampa Bay Devil Rays) and St. Lucie County (New York Mets).

Spring training in Florida generates around $450 million in a six-week stretch in February and March. Last year, a record 1.6 million fans attended spring training games. Eighteen teams play in 17 locations in Florida.
