Vero Beach is the location of Dodgertown, where the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team held their spring training camp from 1948 until 2008 when it moved to a new facility in Glendale, Arizona. The stadium was also the home to the minor league Vero Beach Devil Rays; however, in August 2008 the franchise was sold to the Ripken Baseball Group and did not return to Vero Beach for the 2009 season. In 2009, Dodgertown was leased to Minor League Baseball, and there is no word yet if a new team will make it its home.
