Study: Red Sox Stadium expected to bring more than $30M to Lee County

The new Boston Red Sox spring training stadium will bring in millions of dollars and hundreds of jobs, mostly next year, according to a Florida Gulf Coast University study.

Lee County's expected income from the project is about $5.4 million in 2010, $23.4 million in 2011 and $1.5 million in 2012. And the stadium will bring the equivalent of 92 full-time jobs this year. Next year, that figure zooms to 396 jobs and 25 employees in 2012.

The construction project on Daniels Parkway east of Interstate 75 began in 2010 and is expected to end in time for spring training 2012.
