Winter Haven not happy as it is doubtful they can get another team

But if taxpayer-supported financing for the stadium and a related mix-use development are not approved by the local and state governments in Arizona, Lehman said the Indians "may be in Winter Haven for a long time." "WeUre hopeful that the Arizona tourist development folks will approve the funding," he said. "If not, we'll be in Winter Haven for many years."

The likelihood of them not getting the financing is about 0.000002%.

Since passage of TSA bill several years ago, all Cactus League cities/teams that have requested financing have received it.
