February has long been the month that baseball revs up in Florida, calling fans from around the country to enjoy their favorite sport while the snow is flying elsewhere.
A new tradition of February baseball begins Tuesday, Feb. 3, with the season opener of Palm Beach Atlantic’s Sailfish on their home field in Rubin Park at the Marshall and Vera Lea Rinker Athletic Campus.
Opening ceremonies are set for 5:45 p.m. in advance of the 6 p.m. opening pitch against Lynn University. The public is invited.
Among those participating in the opening ceremonies are John J. and Sheila Rinker, representing the Marshall and Vera Lea Rinker Foundation, and other key contributors to the athletic campus including the J. M Rubin Foundation, The Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation, and the Albert E. and Birdie W. Einstein Fund.
