WASHINGTON -- Principal owner Mark Lerner said the Nationals will make Space Coast Stadium their Spring Training home for at least two years as they look for a new Spring Training facility. The team has talked to the people in Palm Beach County and Viera, Fla.
If the Nationals make Palm Beach County their home, it would take at least two years to build a Spring Training facility. Washington's lease at Space Coast Stadium expires at the end of 2017.
"It has been a long process. Sometime in the next few months, we'll probably be able to cut a deal with somebody and get that behind us," Lerner said.
