Bright lights, hotdogs and nachos, the crack of the bat knocking a home run to the screaming fans in the stands, there's just something magical about baseball games.

Without the interference of huge sponsors and multimillion dollar contract the minor league experience exists purely because of a love for the sport, drawing fans young and old to local stadiums where minor league players test themselves against the drawing board for the big leagues. Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Florida is no exception to its magic, providing fun, excitement and memories to residents and tourists alike. Roger Dean is one of only two fields in Florida that hosts two major league teams; the Miami Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals, and is the only field in the United States that hosts two minor league teams, the Jupiter Hammerheads and the Palm Beach Cardinals.

RD FieldThe Stadium officially opened on February 28,1998 for its first game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Montreal Expos. Rodger Dean Stadium is located in the heart of Abacoa Town Center on 100 acres, with 12 practice fields, ample parking and a 6,800 seat 2 level stadium featuring field box, skybox, bleacher and luxury suites. A large grassy berm set just beyond the first base outfield holds an additional 200 guests, and provides a haven for families with small children who would rather spread out with a blanket. There is also a staffed “Kid’s Area” with a speed pitch setup and inflatable slide. Numerous entrance gates, allow a gentle flow of people and prices are very conservative compared to a major-league game.

RD Field playersThe smell of hot dogs, popcorn and fresh cut grass waft through the open-air stadium as you take your seats. Upon entry, you’ll notice a gift shop, and several fully stocked concessions stands ringing the field’s concourse area. Seven concession stands ring the concourse level of the stadium serving traditional ballpark and specialty foods. The courteous staff, mascots and even the occasional player meanders through the seats, greeting guests and selling snacks and drinks. A PA system and full soundboard highlight the announcer’s calling of the game, and several hilarious mascots can be found on field displaying their antics throughout the season. Sit back and enjoy the game, and stick around for frequent fireworks displays after dark.
