A week after Major League Baseball announced its 2023 regular season schedule, we have the spring training details, and there is a lot to take in. Because the World Baseball Classic overlaps with spring training, some of those countries will be sharing facilities with MLB teams.
The Marlins’ opening game of Grapefruit League competition will be against the New York Mets on February 25th in Port St. Lucie. The Marlins will also see some new opponents this time around with the Tampa Bay Rays, Boston Red Sox, and a WBC team (still to be determined which one). The tournament’s Miami-based Pool D will include the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Israel, Venezuela, and a qualifier team.
The Marlins have posted a winning percentage of .500 or better in each of the last five springs. Can they keep the streak alive?
The Marlins will be playing 15 spring home games. Keep in mind that Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium is also the spring home of the St. Louis Cardinals. Naturally, they have a lot of head-to-head games to make things convenient.

It’s exciting to see so many games on the schedule after this year’s spring training had to be condensed due to the lockout. For fans, this is the first opportunity to see new faces up close—the Marlins are expected to go after more big bats over the offseason and we all know Don Mattingly is coming to the end of his contract, so there could be a different manager in the dugout.
Additional details about start times and tickets sales will be available soon at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium’s website. You can trust Fish Stripes to provide the best coverage of Marlins camp as another new season approaches.
