    John Allen Sighting

    It appears Allen is helping the Reds in an advisory role in their search for a ST location, per Mlb.com.

    CINCINNATI -- An indication they are keeping their options open about a new Spring Training home, the Reds are taking a closer look at Arizona.
    Former Reds chief operating officer John Allen, now a consultant during the club's camp search, will be in Goodyear, Ariz., on Wednesday. Local leaders will make their case during a presentation and give Allen a tour of the city and the location of their planned facility.

    A Nov. 6 ballot referendum that would have provided $16 million in funding to improve the club's current Sarasota, Fla., facility was not approved. The Reds immediately opened a search for a new place to train, which has interested communities in Florida and Arizona reaching out.

    Still in the process of building a Spring Training ballpark, Goodyear will be hosting the Indians beginning in 2009. The city, a western suburb of Phoenix, is seeking a second club to share the facility.

    The Reds' Florida lease at Ed Smith Stadium runs until October, but there are three one-year club options that could extend the club's stay through the 2011 season. Allen and the club have given no details about other cities they might be interested in visiting.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
