Events Roundup: What to Do This March in The Palm Beaches

February 28, 2019

Spring is heating up! Meet authors, hear high-caliber jazz performers and celebrate Palm Beach Pride. There’s more than ever to see and do this March in The Palm Beaches.

MLB Spring Training in The Palm Beaches

See some of baseball’s top teams in action in a relaxed, fan-friendly atmosphere. Spring Training is a favorite of fans—and anyone looking for a fun experience. The players are relaxed, signing autographs and talking to fans, and fans get the chance to see teams learning to play together after a winter break. The action takes place now until March 24.
 
Cheer on your home team! World Series Champion Houston Astros, the St. Louis Cardinals, the Washington Nationals, Miami Marlins and more descend on The Palm Beaches. Visit FITTEAM Ballpark of The Palm Beaches for a truly intimate sporting experience. The park is home to Houston Astros and the Washington Nationals and is about a quarter the size of MLB’s smallest regular-season stadium, meaning it offers an intimate setting with big-league amenities. Head to the Craft Corner and choose from 32 craft beers on tap and watch your team play ball.
 
Located in Jupiter, Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium offers an even more intimate game-day experience. With fewer than 7,000 seats, this stadium is home base for four minor league teams. The stadium hosts the Miami Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals. Grab one of the famous Dean Dogs– a jumbo hot dog with peppers and onions –and sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the seventh inning stretch.
