Baseball City was built in the late 1980s both as a spring training complex and to host various amateur tournaments.
By 2001, however, much of the traffic that used to frequent Baseball City had moved several miles up I-4, to Disney’s Wide World of Sports, a part of Walt Disney World. The Kansas City Royals moved their spring training site to Arizona for 2003; by the fall of that year, the complex was being bulldozed for yet another shopping mall.
