Brewers break ground on spring training complex renovations

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -

The Milwaukee Brewers have broken ground on the renovation project for their spring training home in Phoenix.
   The upgrades to Maryvale Baseball Park are part of a plan that will keep the club at their Arizona home through at least 2042. That would be the second-longest commitment in the Cactus League.
   The renovations include a renovated major league clubhouse; a new clubhouse building with locker rooms that can be used by the major and minor league teams; and a new scoreboard.
   The Brewers say they will invest about $60 million in the construction phase of the program, and will assume operation and maintenance of the facility after the end of this year's spring training.
   The city of Phoenix is set to allocate $2 million each year for the next five years for renovations, and the Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority will contribute approximately $5.7 million.
   Construction is scheduled to begin later this month. The project is expected to be completed by spring training next year.
