 GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -The Glendale City Council gave its unanimous approval Tuesday night to an $80.7 million spring training stadium for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox.
The agreements include a tax-revenue sharing plan with Phoenix because the ballpark is planned on 151 acres of Glendale-owned land inside Phoenix city limits. The site is near the new University of Phoenix stadium, home of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals.
The Dodgers plan to leave Vero Beach, Fla., their spring training home of more than 50 years, in 2009. Team owner Frank H. McCourt Jr., speaking at Chase Field in Phoenix, called the vote ``a very, very significant step.''
He declined to characterize the chances of the team relocating to Glendale.
``I will say that we are definitely moving in the direction,'' McCourt said. ``That's a very, very significant milestone. It's not the end of the line, but it's significant. We've been meeting regularly with the city and their consultants. We've seen preliminary designs and we're now getting into very serious design development.''
The White Sox currently hold spring training in Tucson and have a long-term agreement with the city. If Chicago is unable to get out of the contract until it expires in 2013, the team could face stiff fines if the Glendale facility is underused.
