The Palm Beach County Commissioners voted today to approve funding for the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros to build a spring training complex in Palm Beach. The vote was 5-2, according to Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington. The Nationals and Astros must now find a plot of land in Palm Beach to build the complex. They have 90 days to do so.
A new stadium in Palm Beach County would leave the Nationals within a 30-minute drive of four other clubs: the Astros (who would be right on site), the Cardinals and Marlins (who train in Jupiter, at the north end of Palm Beach County) and the Mets in Port St. Lucie.
