Cards Minor League Spring Training Schedules

Updated schedules for all four Cardinals minor league squads currently training in Florida.

If you're like me, you'll want to cram as much baseball as possible into your March trip to warm Florida. Some came early to catch World Baseball Classic action up in Orlando. Other fans arrive later in the month, now that Albert Pujols, Yadier Molina and the rest of the WBC players have returned to their major league camps.

For those considering this latter approach, there is an additional bonus – an opportunity to catch some of the up-and-coming Cardinals organization players in live action under the Florida sun during the latter half of this month.

The four Cardinals minor league squads training in Florida began their slate of spring training games on March 15 and the schedule runs into the first few days of April. Even as these teams set their rosters and head north, some number of players will remain behind in extended spring training, which formally begins play on April 10.

All Cardinals home games and those against the Florida Marlins' minor leaguers at the Roger Dean Stadium complex in Jupiter, Florida are highlighted in BOLD. Cardinals home games there are scheduled to begin at 12:30 PM, but be aware that the environment is less-formal than with the major leaguers. Note that the Marlins' home games are on their side of the complex, just a short walk from the Cardinals' fields, but they typically start at 1 PM. There is no charge to watch any of these games.

Though well over half the spring contests will be held at Jupiter, for trip planning purposes, away games are also not too far away. The New York Mets' clubs play at Port St. Lucie and the Los Angeles Dodgers' contests are at Vero Beach.
