Armando Gutierrez Jr. continues his attempt to bring affiliated ball back to Orlando, this time with a little taste of what a new Orlando Yankees (High Class A; Florida State League) ballpark would look like.
Gutierrez’s plan relies on receiving free land from Orange County at the corner of the Beeline (OK, the BeachLine) and International Drive (specifically, southwest of that intersection), near the Orlando Convention Center, Seaworld and I-4, as well as some other government assistance to build a baseball-themed museum as part of the ballpark complex.
Like all ballpark renderings, it looks wonderful. If everything falls into place, the Tampa Yankees could relocate for the 2013 season. And no, there are no plans to include enough room for a spring-training facility as part of the ballpark.
