The Calm Before the Game at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium


Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, located in Jupiter, Florida, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year, is the home of the Miami Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals for Spring training. It is one of two stadiums in Florida to host two MLB teams during this time. It is also the only stadium in the country to host four MiLB teams: Jupiter Hammerheads, Palm Beach Cardinals, FCL Marlins, and FCL Coast Cardinals.

The stadium can get pretty hectic with all these teams coming and going throughout the year, especially on game day. However, there is one part of game day with total peace and tranquility; in the morning, as the employees and volunteers prepare for the day, with no fans in sight or a player on the field. As you approach and walk around the stadium, there is just silence.
