In exchange for $2.5 million worth of renovations to Digital Domain Park in St. Lucie, “The Mets have agreed to extend their lease from 2018 to 2023,” reports Laurel Phahler for the St. Lucie News.
According to the report, “The improvements also could help with efforts to bring in a second team to the facility. Phahler points that recent reports indicate the Mets have spoken to at least two teams about the possibility of moving to Port St. Lucie.
In either case, I’d love to see all of these teams get closer together (in distance), to form a sort-of Florida version of what goes on Arizona for Spring Training, which looks like a lot of fun for fans.
