Will Lake Worth commissioners play ball with the Braves?

Braves pic 2Lake Worth City Commissioners tonight are expected to vote on a resolution supporting the Atlanta Braves’ bid to build a spring training facility in John Prince Park, west of Lake Worth.

The resolution, drafted by City Manager Michael Bornstein on behalf of Vice Mayor Scott Maxwell, states the site would have a “tremendous” economic impact and provide additional tourist bed tax revenue.

It also says the site would add another venue for other sporting and cultural activities in Lake Worth and the surrounding communities.

The Braves trained in West Palm Beach for 34 years before moving to the Orlando area in 1997.
