Attending a Washington Nationals Game at Space Coast Stadium
After Sharing Jupiter Roger Dean Stadium with the St. Louis Cardinals, the Washington Nationals now call Space Coast Stadium in Viera their spring training home. It was completed in 1994 as the spring-training home of the Florida Marlins, who trained there through 2002.
There is a definite space theme to Space Coast Stadium, an homage to nearby Kennedy Space Center. Fans are greeted by a US Space Shuttle model dedicated to America's pioneering Spirit in Space Exploration. Each foul pole at Space Coast Stadium pays tribute to the lost crews of both the Challenger and Columbia.
Space Coast Stadium is a wonderful place to catch a Spring Training game primarily due to some significant improvements to the park for 2008 such as an electronic scoreboard with a 4 mega-pixel video screen, a brand new lighting system, and an updated PA system. The 2008 improvements come as an addition to the renovations that Brevard County commissioners committed $2.6 million in tourist taxes to for a new roof and canopies, interior and exterior paint jobs, improved drainage and new seats, changed to dark blue and the railings painted red to match the Nationals colors. Added for the 2010 season was a left field tiki bar and picnic area.
