If you are in Tampa on a March afternoon, get to Steinbrenner Field to catch the Bronx bombers in action!

The field dimensions at JetBlue Park will be identical to those at Fenway.

8. Hammond Stadium
Buy Minnesota Twins Spring Training Tickets
Hammond Stadium, home of the Minnesota Twins, is a sight to be seen. While walking up to the main gate, you may feel like you are at the Kentucky Derby. The facade was made to look like Churchill Downs. If you find yourself in Ft. Myers be sure to visit the baseball history museum at nearby Terry Park Stadium. It chronicles the unique history of baseball in Southern Florida.

9. Roger Dean Stadium
Buy Miami Marlins Spring Training Tickets
Buy St. Louis Cardinals Spring Training Tickets

The Washington Nationals made their Florida debut at Space Coast Stadium in 2007. It is a good place to see a game but if you plan on catching a game here, be sure to bring some sunscreen. Only the top rows of the 200 level down the line offer shade in the midday.

Buy Atlanta Braves Spring Training Tickets
This stadium is one of the nicest in all of the Grapefruit League. It is very large, seating 9,500 fans, but the the designers have laid it out so 90% of the seats are between the bases! It is a gem of a ballpark and is very family friendly with Disney World located right next door.

14. Joker Marchant Stadium
Buy Detroit Tigers Spring Training Tickets
Joker Marchant Stadium was renovated in 2003. The Tigers don't draw as well as some of the other teams in the Grapefruit League but if you are a Tigers fan, this means plenty of seats to be had! If you are a casual baseball fan looking to see some big names, look for games vs the Yankees, Mets, Red Sox or Braves. The tickets will be cheaper here than in the home stadiums of these teams.

About the Grapefruit League
A Fan's Guide to the Game

The Grapefruit League as a whole is the largest sporting event east of the Mississippi. Every year, millions of fans flock to Florida Spring training stadiums to partake in baseball nirvana. Fifteen Major League teams make Florida their baseball home for the month of March.

To get the most out of your baseball vacation, try to hit as many stadiums as possible. The stadiums of Florida's Grapefruit League are sprawled across the state from Orlando and Tampa to Ft. Myers and Fort Lauderdale. Staying someplace central will allow you more games to choose from. The Tampa area seems to be a good bet for many. There are four stadiums rather close while Kissimmee (Astros) and Orlando (Braves) are not too far away.

For Red Sox Nation, the hot spot this year will be Ft. Myers. The Twins are not a bad draw either.

A quick drive down Florida's east coast will get you to the Mets, Marlins and Cardinals.

No matter where you go, you can't go wrong. There is a certain atmosphere in the spring Florida air that is hard to describe, you just have to experience it for yourself. If you get the chance, try to catch a couple of games this season. Enjoy the warm Florida sun, giant hot dogs, draft beer and Major League baseball in tiny stadiums. Does it get any better than this?
