JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Houston Astros owner Jim Crane hopes to have a deal for a new spring training home for his ballclub within six months.

Crane said Sunday he wants the Astros to be able to move in for the 2017 season.

The Astros are looking to replace their current home in Kissimmee with a site on the east coast of Florida. Kissimmee is near Orlando in the center of the state.

Osceola County Stadium was considered state of the art when the Astros moved there in 1985, but Crane said the complex is "probably the worst" in the Grapefruit League now.
