The $144 million complex, shared by both teams, opened in 2017 after contractors scurried to put the finishing touches on the ballpark last spring. The ballpark, which is built on a former landfill just west of Interstate I-95, is funded primarily by county tourist tax revenue and the state of Florida, which was driven to keep both teams from moving to Arizona.
