All of these renovations have made Tradition Field an enjoyable place to watch a game. That was after being perhaps the worst stadium in all of Spring Training for over a decade. Because of the amount of money that Port St. Lucie has given the Mets to renovate the stadium, the Mets have signed a lease guaranteeing their occupancy till at least 2018. New neighborhoods and businesses have sprung up all around the ballpark which had previously been baron, and the area around the ballpark is now officially known as the town of Tradition.
