The FSF promotes Florida Spring Training Baseball as a tourist destination for Major League Baseball fans each March as 15 MLB teams venture to Florida for a pre-season tune up.
In 2017, over 1.5 million fans flocked to Florida and since 2000, more than 28 million fans have attended Florida Spring Training Games. These totals lead to an annual economic impact of $753 million per year for the State of Florida.
The annual complimentary Florida Spring Training Guide and Florida Grapefruit League Mobile Phone App are popular ways to access schedules of all teams, stadium locations and directions and ticket information. For more about Florida Spring Training Baseball visit www.floridagrapefruitleague.com
