WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Astros senior vice president for business operations Marcel Braithwaite was in a construction trailer Thursday night when he noticed that the large orange star with an "H" in front of it sitting in front of the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches was suddenly lit up. The Astros' symbol was reflecting on a small lake in front of the facility and served as a glowing indication the team's sparkling new Spring Training facility was just about ready. The Astros, who will share a stadium on the site with the Nationals, got a certificate of occupancy Monday as a couple of players and dozens of construction workers both put in their work in the afternoon sun.
