PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) -- The San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners have agreed to a 20-year lease extension with the city of Peoria, Ariz., that will keep both teams' spring training camps in the Phoenix suburb through 2034.

The agreement announced Monday calls for the city to invest $48 million in both clubs' training facilities and their shared stadium over the course of the lease.

The deal includes renovations of the Padres and Mariners' clubhouses scheduled to begin after spring training in 2013.

The Padres and Mariners moved into the facility in 1994.
