Construction Update: Lights going up at Ballpark of the Palm Beaches
Even though we’re in the middle of an exciting season, it’s never too early to start thinking about Spring Training 2017. Starting next year, the Nationals will be holding spring training in West Palm Beach, Fl., at a state-of-the-art facility shared with the Houston Astros.
The new facility is going to be a wonderful complex for our team, our fans and the Palm Beach community. The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches will feature Major League-size practice fields, minor league-size practice fields, batting cages and pitching mounds. The stadium itself will significantly improve the fan experience with 6,400 ticketed seats and 1,250 ticketed berm seats, as well as suites, party decks, concession stands, team store, a picnic area and outfield attractions.
Although we only broke ground last fall, the construction crews have worked tirelessly and we’ve made great progress in recent months. Yesterday, the official Twitter account of the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches posted a picture of the Nationals practice field lights going up. Check it out below!
We’re getting excited for Spring Training 2017 and we hope you are too!
