Before that, the Indians held spring training for many years in Tucson. On April 7, 2008, Goodyear’s city council unanimously approved a memorandum to fund a new $33 million baseball spring training complex for Major League Baseball’s Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians. This includes a 10,000-seat park, Goodyear Ballpark that opened in 2009. The Reds and the Indians will have separate offices, clubhouses and practice fields. The Indians, who had held their spring training in Tucson for many years until moving to Winter Haven in 1993, agreed to return their spring training location back to Arizona on December 21, 2006.
