According to the News Press, the Twins and Lee County have an agreement on a deal that will potentially keep the Twins in Ft. Myers for the next 30-50 years. The Twins were able to submit a wish list for improvements that can be agreed upon. The vote will take place November 6. Dave St. Peter and Bill Smith have been in Ft. Myers in meetings the last two days.

Check out the wish list. There are a lot of things there to make the fan experience there better. But also the plan is to adjust the field to match the dimensions of Target Field.

Seems reasonable. Glad they are staying there ... it's a good spot. Expanded seating and expanded concourse are definitely needed.
