Maryvale Baseball Park

By Jessica Boehm | The Republic

After years of uncertainty, the Milwaukee Brewers are ready to commit to spring training in Maryvale for another quarter century.

The Brewers and Phoenix inked a deal that would require the team to spend between $41 million and $63 million on renovations to Maryvale Baseball Park and take over operations of the facility.

In return, the city will spend $10 million over the next five years to assist with renovations. It also will pay the team about $1.4 million per year for 25 years to operate the park, which is about what it spends now on operations, according to a city staff report.

At the end of the 25-year deal, the Brewers will have the option to purchase the ballpark at its appraised value with credit based on how much the team invests in the facility over the life of the deal.

The city council will vote on the deal at a meeting on Nov. 15.
