The Marlins' spring training schedule is up on the Roger Dean Stadium website, and the Grapefruit League slate features at least one game of interest in Jupiter, a visit by the always popular Boston Red Sox on March 9. Word of warning, though. Don't expect the Sox to send over their big stars. The game is being contested so early in spring training that you're more likely to see guys wearing numbers found most often on the backs of football linemen. The BoSox also have a March 12 game in Jupiter against the St. Louis Cardinals, who share the facility with the Marlins.
With the Baltimore Orioles moving out of Fort Lauderdale and across the state to Sarasota, Roger Dean is now the spring training site closest in proximity to South Florida.
For the Marlins, the action begins when the University of Miami heads up for a March 3 exhibition.
