Talk about your double plays! Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter is the spring training home to not one, but two World Series Championship teams – the St. Louis Cardinals and Florida Marlins. In their opening spring game, the Marlins beat the Cardinals 6-3. Marlins’ prospect Matt Dominguez hit a no-doubt two-run homer in the second inning, bringing the crowd to their feet. Marlins’ fans are anxious to see relief pitcher Clay Hensley get some work, while Cardinal fans want to see how Colby Rasmus and Yadier Molina do in their Grapefruit League debuts. Spring training games will continue through the end of March, and individual and group tickets are available. I love going to this stadium – it’s just a few minutes off I-95, and close to some fun activities to fill my down time. Just can’t beat a spring game followed by a sunset hike up the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, or an early morning paddle at Riverbend Park.
