Florida Spectator Sports

Floridians love their sport and any vacation in Florida provides ample opportunity to join the cheering spectators as they support their local teams competing in the professional leagues.

Fans of major-league baseball can see the Florida Marlins at the 36,000 seat Sunlife Stadium in Miami and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays at the 44,000 seat Tropicana Stadium in St. Petersburg throughout the NBL season which extends from April through September.

Florida is the traditional home for the spring training camps and baseball fever starts from late February when the pro teams tune up with exhibition games in the "Grapefruit League". The spring-training stadiums often provide an opportunity for fans can see their favorite players up close and maybe get an autograph.

The training camps can change location from year to year, so its advisable to use the Florida Sports Foundation site which usually posts the Grapefruit League schedules in late January. The scheduled spring training camps can be confirmed at the following website links.
