The Jupiter Hammerheads are a Minor League Baseball team of the Low-A Southeast and the Low-A affiliate of the Miami Marlins. They are located in the town of Jupiter in Palm Beach County, Florida, and play their home games at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium. Opened in 1998, the park seats 6,871 people.[1] They share the facility with the Palm Beach Cardinals, also of the Low-A Southeast.

On May 23, 2011, the Hammerheads gained national attention after playing in a 23-inning game against the Clearwater Threshers.[2]

In 2012, the Hammerheads won the 2nd Half Division Title and went on to defeat the St. Lucie Mets in a decisive Game 3 of the Division Championship Series to capture their first ever Division title.[3] Jupiter lost in the FSL Championship in the fifth and final game against the Lakeland Flying Tigers, despite holding a 2-1 lead after Game 3.[4][5]
