Glendale complex on target for 2009

Glendale complex on target for 2009

|
PHOENIX -- Two executives overseeing the development of the Dodgers' new Spring Training complex in nearby Glendale insisted on Saturday that it will be completed in time for the start of 2009 training camp.

"We're going to see baseball," said Glendale construction consultant Greg Gesicki. "We'll be in on time. It will be finished. It's a big project, but it's doable."

Craig Callan, the Dodgers' vice president of Spring Training facilities, standing with Gesicki before Saturday's game with the Angels, believes the prediction.

"This is the man that I look at eyeball-to-eyeball to get my information," said Callan, in town to continue preparations for the club's move into the $80 million complex it will share with the Chicago White Sox. "He continues to tell me we'll be in. He's assured us, and I'm comfortable with that."

Callan said that the stadium outfield walls are up, the dugouts have been excavated and concrete will soon be poured for the superstructure base.

"If you went there today, you wouldn't see a lot, but it's all moving well," said Callan. "They're doing a lot of the work underneath. We're right on the cusp of seeing a lot of the pretty stuff."
