Sunny afternoon of Spring Training baseball

It's Time to Play Ball

MLB Spring Training in The Palm Beaches

Four baseball teams, two stadiums, one cool destination.

If you’re a fan of baseball, there’s nothing better than Spring Training in Florida. Imagine: It’s sunny and warm (not too warm), and you’re at the ballpark with the family watching the World Series Champion Houston Astros at FITTEAM Ballpark of The Palm Beaches or cheering on their Spring Training neighbor, the St. Louis Cardinals, at Roger Dean Cheverlot Stadium. The players are relaxed, signing autographs, talking to fans and learning to play as a team again after a winter break.
 
The Palm Beaches are the Spring Training location for the Astros, Cardinals, Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins. From superstars to rookies to guys just trying to make the team, Spring Training is a fan-friendly atmosphere everyone should experience at least once.

Houston Astros Spring Training

Watch the hot bats of Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman or the smoking arm of Gerrit Cole as the 2017 World Series champions prepare for the 2019 season with a month of games at FITTEAM Ballpark of The Palm Beaches. Their first game is set for Saturday, Feb. 23, against the Nationals.

Washington Nationals Spring Training

FITTEAM Ballpark of The Palm Beaches is also the Washington Nationals’ Spring Training location. The Nationals dominated the National League East in 2017, then went 82-80 in 2018. Watch the strikeout machine Max Scherzer, or see if Bryce Harper looks like he'll break 100 RBIs 2019. The Nats kick off Spring Training against the Astros on Saturday, Feb. 23.

Visiting FITTEAM Ballpark of The Palm Beaches

This park is intimate, yet world-class. With just 7,700 seats, FITTEAM Ballpark of The Palm Beaches is about a quarter the size of MLB’s smallest regular-season stadium, but it offers big-league amenities, including a Craft Corner with 32 craft beers on tap, suites, lawn seats starting at just $10, and ample parking. Getting tickets in advance is advised, especially when the most popular teams are in town. 

Make a full-day experience out of your Spring Training outing to FITTEAM Ballpark of The Palm Beaches. The West Palm Beach area is packed with things to do. Head to Manatee Lagoon to see the sea cows warming themselves in the waters just off shore. Or enjoy hikes ranging from 1/2-mile to 5 miles around bird-filled Winding Waters Natural Area. Upgrade from a ballpark hot dog to innovative fare from “Top Chef” alumni Lindsay Autry at The Regional Kitchen and Public House. The ballpark is just minutes from the Palm Beach International Airport, with a variety of lodging options in the area.

St. Louis Cardinals Spring Training

Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium is the Spring Training home of the St. Louis Cardinals. Watch Jose Martinez and Matt Carpenter take the field, and see Miles Mikolas up on the mound. The Cards face the Miami Marlins for their first Spring Training game of 2019 on Saturday, Feb. 23.

Miami Marlins Spring Training

South Florida home-team Miami Marlins also train at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, where you can see players like Starlin Castro, Brian Anderson and Jose Urena in action. The Marlins' first Spring Training game of the season is Saturday, Feb. 23, against the Cardinals.

Visiting Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium

In Jupiter, Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium hosts Spring Training for the St. Louis Cardinals and local-favorite Miami Marlins, so getting tickets early is key. Offering an even more intimate experience with fewer than 7,000 seats, this stadium is also home base to regular-season play for four minor league teams.

While in Jupiter for a game, be sure to stop by the historic Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum to get panoramic views of the Florida coastline from the lighthouse balcony 105 steps up. Stay at the luxurious and upscale Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa, or just stop in for drinks and live entertainment in their swanky lounge.
