Two Phoenix Suburbs Vie for Sports Complex

No agreement has been reached either with Glendale, Ariz., or Goodyear, Ariz., the two Phoenix suburbs hoping to receive state funding for a proposed two-team complex, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports.

Baseball teams seeking spring training facilities are considering both locations, and the Los Angeles Dodgers are believed to strongly prefer Glendale, home of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals and the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes, according to the SGV Tribune.

The Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority will provide funding for only one facility through rental car and hotel taxes, but it won't become involved until all contracts are signed, reports The Chicago Tribune.
