14 Jun, 2019
Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium will host the Florida State League All-Star Game on June 15th, 2019. Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, which is home to the Jupiter Hammerheads and Palm Beach Cardinals of the Florida State League, will host the Florida State League All Star Game for the first time since 2000.
It will be the 58th time that the rising stars from the Florida State League's North and South divisions face off against each other. The league will be celebrating its 100th anniversary throughout the 2019 season, and Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium will be at the forefront of the celebration during the All-Star weekend.
The Florida State League has undergone tremendous changes since the last time the all-star game was in Jupiter. Since the millennium, there have been multiple organizations that have joined the historic league with the Reds, Braves, Cardinals and the Pirates all bringing their Advanced-A affiliates to the Florida State League.
Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium opened in 1998 and has served as the Florida State League home to the Jupiter Hammerheads since 1998 and the Palm Beach Cardinals since 2003. Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium is the only Minor League stadium in the country to play home to two separate teams.
The annual spectacle puts all of tomorrow's Major League Baseball (MLB) stars in the same stadium for one night. There have been many Major League All-Stars that participated in an all-star game during their stint in the Florida State League. Players such as Gary Sanchez, Noah Syndergaard, Marcell Ozuna and many others have all donned a Florida State League All-Star uniform at one point in their career.
Minor League Baseball fans from across Florida are expected to visit The Palm Beaches for the Florida State League All Star Game. To purchase tickets click this link: https://bit.ly/2WsETfV
