Don't be surprised if the Rockies make a pitch to move into TEP or go to Phoenix....they have never been happy with the older Hi-Corbett conditions....:whiner:

This should be in the "Minor Observations" forum. :wink:
The Chicago White Sox, who have shared Tucson's Kino Sports Complex and Tucson Electric Park with the Diamondbacks since 1998, have long been rumored to be candidates to move to the Valley. The team's chairman, Jerry Reinsdorf, reportedly would like the club to train closer to his winter home in Paradise Valley.

If the White Sox leave Tucson, that would open a spot for the Indians, who trained in Tucson from 1947 to 1992. They have since trained in Winter Haven, Fla., but have expressed interested in moving.

"The Indians want out of Winter Haven," Cardwell said. "That's no secret."

Efforts to reach Cleveland club officials were unsuccessful.
