UPDATE: Spring training night game at Roger Dean Stadium canceled


Tonight’s game at Roger Dean Stadium is only night game during spring training

UPDATE, 7:35 p.m.: The Miami Marlins have canceled their exhibition game at Roger Dean Stadium tonight because of continued inclement weather.

Heavy rains, thunder and lightning are not enough to postpone tonight’s 7 p.m. spring training game between the Miami Marlins and Washington Nationals at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter’s Abacoa.

The game is the only night contest scheduled for the spring training season.

“It was real bad,. The thunder and lightning were constant,” said Tim Keough, a resident Mallory Creek, a section of Abacoa.

Keough is planning on attending the game with his daughter Chelsea.
