The Orioles are supposed to do spring training in 2011 at Ed Smith Stadium. They might do it in 2010 if Sarasota renovates the stadium in time. There was an article in the Sarasota newspaper a week ago or so about this. I drove by the stadium last week and it didn't look like much was going on. The stadium in Bradenton is very nice as well as the Port Charlotte Stadium. Ed Smith needs some serious attention.

The Orioles have signed a 30 year lease for spring training in Sarasota, with games starting this upcoming March. For spring training 2010 no renovations will be done, as there is not enough time to complete what they have in mind.

After this spring, Ed Smith will have an extensive renovation/rebuilding done.

Sorry. I was just meaning that it will be cool to have a local team. That might be one of the very few things I will miss from Cincinnati, the Reds. Single A is single A. Most of the guys will be on different teams by the time they make the majors anyway!

Thank you for clarifying that. We will be there in March so we will get to some games.
