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

February 24, 2020

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. Four teams make The Palm Beaches their Spring Training home: the World Series Champion Washington Nationals, the Houston Astros, St. Louis Cardinals, and Miami Marlins. 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.

Discover a truly intimate sporting experience at FITTEAM Ballpark of The Palm Beaches, which is about a quarter of the size of Major League Baseball's smallest regular-season stadium, and head to the Craft Corner to choose from 32 craft beers on tap. Located in Jupiter, Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium offers an even more intimate game-day experience, with fewer than 7,000 seats. This stadium is the home base of the Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals, as well as four minor league teams. 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. The big league action takes place now through March 22.
