Trust your Jupiter realtors: Spring Training is an experience you won’t want to miss. So slather on your sunscreen and don your favorite jerseys, because the St. Louis Cardinals, along with local favorite Miami Marlins, are set to begin their Spring Training schedules at Jupiter’s Roger Dean Stadium next week.
The St. Louis Cardinals began training at the Abacoa facility during the Stadium’s 1998 inaugural year. This year, the team is slated to host 15 games at Roger Dean Stadium against big league teams like the New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves, and Houston Astros.
Super fans looking for even more action off the field and in between games can check out a full squad workout on the stadium’s backfields.
Expect a busy season this year! In 2018, the Cardinals alone brought in a whopping 82,791 fans during the team’s 14 home games and the Miami Marlins trailed with an impressive 56,687. Based on last year’s attendance from fans of both teams, Jupiter’s Abacoa can expect to see more than 140,000 extra visitors to the modest community.
Luckily for you, Abacoa is an all-inclusive neighborhood so you won’t have to look far for restaurants, entertainment, relaxation, and even beautiful property within walking distance of batting practice. Here are some local favorites:
