Roger Dean Stadium Renovations & Closing Q&A
In its 26th baseball season, Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium is set to undergo long-awaited upgrades as Jupiter prepares for a new era at America’s Busiest Ballpark. The Spring Training home of the St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins, and Florida State League (FSL) home to the Palm Beach Cardinals and Jupiter Hammerheads, will begin renovations to facilities on July 10th.
With the 2023 FSL season presented by Baptist Health already in progress, and the Cardinals and Hammerheads currently leading the East Division, operations will be temporarily moved to The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches, the Spring Training home to the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals. The last FSL game at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium in 2023 will be played on Sunday, July 9th. Following the mid-season All-Star Break, the two teams will play exclusively on the road, until moving into The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches on Monday, July 24th. Both the Hammerheads and Cardinals will return to Jupiter for the 2024 season as complex improvements continue. The Marlins and Cardinals are planning to host an uninterrupted Spring Training in Jupiter amidst the vast fan-friendly improvements to Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium and the team facilities.
