Palm Beach County officials agreed to fund construction of a new baseball stadium, but where that stadium will be located remains a mystery.

On Tuesday, county commissioners voted 5-2 to spend $135 million to build a new stadium. Both the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals have signaled their interest in moving here if they have a new baseball stadium and training facility to use, according to a report in the Sun-Sentinel.

Not only where the future stadium will be situated, but also how the county will pay for it, is still up in the air. [Sun-Sentinel] Jennifer White Karp
