New Stadium for Baseball Spring Training
Both the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros are getting a new home for spring training in West Palm Beach with the construction of a brand new stadium, the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches. Slated to open in 2017, the opening of the stadium makes the area a new coveted destination for sports in Palm Beach, ending an 18-year hiatus of spring training baseball in West Palm Beach after the Atlanta Braves and Montreal Expos left the area in 1997.
