Looks like it's official. The Sox and Dodgers now have their new ST home in Glendale, AZ. Saves me a couple hours driving to see the games, so great news for me.

Back to Sarasota would have been better.

I liked Tucson. Shorter drive to Tombstone and Bisbee. Plus, it was a really good college town. However, this may not be a done deal for the Sox yet, I think. They still have to get out the contract with Tucson.

Plus, why do they have to share with another team? It's better than having all the hometown fans supporting the other team, but there will be tons more Dodger fans there than Sox fans for the many times they play each other.

I live in Chandler which is in the Southeast Valley, so I don't really care either way. Glendale's closer for me, but not all that close, and I always enjoyed the drive down to Tucson.

But I think it is a done deal. IIRC, the Sox need to find another team to take their place or else pay a hefty penalty. Looks like they would be willing to pay it.
