Florida East Coast District Members of CCIM and the RCA of the Palm Beaches held a networking event on March 9 in one of South Florida’s newest sports venues.
Over 50 people attended the event at the brand new Ballpark of the Palm Beaches for a spring training game between the Washington Nationals and the Miami Marlins. It was a beautiful day to network with fellow commercial professionals and watch baseball from the party deck of the stadium.
The event was one of the first games to be held at the recently opened park, located in West Palm Beach, Florida. The stadium has a capacity of 6,500 people in fixed seats with room for 1,000 more on the outfield berm. The stadium hosts the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals Major League Baseball teams annually for spring training.
In addition to the stadium itself, the complex provides separate spring training facilities for the two teams. Each team has two major-league-size practice fields, four-minor-league-size practice fields, an agility field, a half field, batting cages, and pitching mounds. The Astros′ training facilities are on the north and northeast side of the complex and their offices are behind the stadium′s left-field corner, while the Nationals’ facilities are on the south and southeast side with offices behind home plate.
