O's likely aren't Sarasota-bound

The Baltimore Sun

The Orioles hope to combine their major league and minor league operations soon, but the minor leaguers continue to train at Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota. The major leaguers trained there for a couple of springs in the early 1990s, and there was some talk about building a permanent facility there before the team moved back to the East Coast of Florida.

Now, there's talk that the Cincinnati Reds will soon vacate the nearby Ed Smith Stadium complex and head for Arizona - which would make that facility available to another team - but the Orioles seem unlikely to head back in that direction, even if the tentative deal in Fort Lauderdale falls through.
