If you’re a baseball fan living in Gainesville, Ocala, or Daytona Beach, Spring Training in Florida might as well be your Christmas. Why not take a trip down the coast and view each game, batting practice, and signing session? Here’s how you can make the most of this season’s baseball extravaganza within the Sunshine State.
The Grapefruit League
Grapefruit League is Florida’s premier pre-season baseball league. Throughout spring, MLB teams host games and training sessions to evaluate talent, strategies, and team composition. But you can go and enjoy these Spring Training events without spending more than a few bucks.
Our closest Grapefruit League team is located in Lake Buena Vista, just south of our Gainesville Honda dealers. The Atlanta Braves’ season kicks off on February 25th where they face the Blue Jays from the North. From then until their season-ender on March 29th (when they take on the Mets), you can bring the family to the field for hot dogs, “hey batter, batter” chants, and tons of opportunities to get autographs from your favorite baseball players.
If you’re intent on trying to catch more games than most people could even imagine, drive south and join the throngs of baseball fanatics in Clearwater, Tampa, Lakeland, or even all the way down to Fort Myers. When spring ends, you’ll be ready for real MLB action to begin!
