Page 2 - Florida Spring Training Baseball

Roger Dean Stadium is in Jupiter, FL on the east coast.
It is the Spring Training home of both the St. Louis Cardinals and the Miami Marlins.
We enjoy baseball and are here in particular to see Marlins pitcher Nick Wittgren #64
and his team in a few games with other Grapefruit League teams.

The first game of Spring Training featured the Marlins playing the Cardinals.
March 3, 2016

Someone special also showed up for the game today.

The King of Beers and the Clydesdales.


The next day, it was back to Roger Dean to see the Marlins hosting the Washington Nationals.
March 4, 2016

The Marlins put together a good looking team with some true stars including
Ichiro Suzuki #51 on his way to a 3,000 hit career this year.

One of the best pitchers in the MLB is the Marlins' starter Jose Fernadez #16.

Sadly, he would not finish the season this year, as he was killed in a tragic
boating accident on September 25, 2016.

Lots of young men trying to make this years team.


Nick Wittgren into the game.

Marlins Win!
