The article reports that the Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority's $1.5 million claim against Tempe for money spent on a stadium that was never built could hold up a planned minor league baseball training camp project in the city. The authority wants to be paid for money it spent in 2001 to develop space in Tempe for a new football stadium for the National Football League's Arizona Cardinals. The dispute began in November 2001, when the Federal Aviation Administration ruled that a stadium at the Tempe site would be a hazard to flights landing and taking off at Sky Harbor International Airport.
