Spring training in Jupiter means great baseball, amazing weather, and sweet autograph opportunities with MLB players.
Games kicked off at Roger Dean Stadium this week, and Jupiter Magazine was on-site to catch all the action.
The Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals played their first official match-up between two Major League teams on Thursday, March 3. The Cards won the game 4-3.
We had a blast talking to Marlins players about their favorite things to do in Jupiter, checking out Roger Dean Stadium’s new bullpen club seats, and watching Marlins star pitcher Jose Fernandez interact with fans.
Other Grapefruit League teams, including the Atlanta Braves, New York Mets and Boston Red Sox, will make stops in Jupiter for games against the Marlins and Cards throughout the month of March.
If you’re interested in heading out to a game yourself, take a look at both teams’ full spring training schedule here. Tickets start at $15.
