‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎Holman Stadium

In 1947, local businessman and Airport Director Bud Holman approached the Brooklyn Dodgers about the possibility of making the vacated World War II US Naval Air Station in Vero Beach their Spring Training home. Dodgertown officially opened its doors in 1948, and the legendary Holman Stadium opened soon after in 1953.
