VERO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The longtime site of the Los Angeles Dodgers' spring training home will change its name from Vero Beach Sports Village to Historic Dodgertown - Vero Beach, Florida.

Peter O'Malley announced the name change Thursday. O'Malley is a former owner and president of the Dodgers and part of a group that runs the Florida Treasure Coast baseball complex.

O'Malley sold the Dodgers in 1998, 48 years after his family took control. The team trained each spring at Dodgertown from 1949 through 2008. Minor league baseball moved in the following year to bring high school and college tournaments and fantasy camps to the facility. After that, Dodgertown became Vero Beach Sports Village.

Last June, O'Malley and Indian River County, which owns the land, agreed to a long-term lease extension through April 2019.
