Washington Nationals Spring Training

Take me out to the ballgame.

What’s better than going to a professional baseball game while visiting Florida’s Space Coast during the balmy days of March?  Not much. The Space Coast Stadium is the Spring Training home of the Washington Nationals Baseball Team and the regular season home of the Brevard County Manatees. Check the game schedules for both teams and launch some all American fun.

The Washington Nationals

From mid-January to mid-February, coaches and players arrive to prepare for the Spring Training game schedule for the Washington Nationals major league baseball team. Games are played through the month of March with both National League and American League teams coming to Viera for scheduled competition. The surrounding practice fields are used by National and Manatee players that remain here for additional training from February through October.

The Brevard County Manatees

The Space Coast is the summer home of the Class-A-Advanced Brevard County Manatees of the Florida State League. They are an affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. The summer afternoons are filled with cheers from the crowd as the residents support the local teams. Events and celebrations are held at the Stadium all year long. The Viera Future Foundation organizes a well-attended 4th of July game event every year called the Great American Celebration with the Manatees. Residents and visitors can gather on the berm and enjoy a night of baseball, great food and fireworks.
