Tradition Field (Formerly Digital Domain Park & Thomas J. White Stadium) is a baseball stadium located in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The stadium was built in time for the 1988 season and holds 7,160 people. It is the Spring training home of the New York Mets, as well as the home to the St. Lucie Mets Class A team and the Gulf Coast Mets Rookie League team.

Naming rights

Thomas J. White, the person for whom the stadium was originally named, was a real estate developer from St. Louis Missouri who worked with sportswriter Jack Champion on the successful campaign to bring the Mets to Port St. Lucie. He was the master developer who gave birth to the town of St. Lucie West. In 2004 the Mets changed the name of the venue to Tradition Field.

On March 23, 2010, during a Mets spring training game against the Atlanta Braves, it was announced that effective immediately the stadium would be renamed Digital Domain Park, as a result of a multi-year partnership between the Mets and Digital Domain.

At the end of the 2012 season, the Mets announced that Digital Domain would no longer own the naming rights to the ballpark. The stadium is temporarily renamed Mets Stadium until further notice. On February 7, 2013, the Mets struck a deal with Tradition Florida. The ballpark will once again be called Tradition Field, the park's name from 2004-2009.[4]

Tradition Field


The Stadium featured several new amenities in 2012. The rightfield bleacher was replaced with 500 field-level seats, highlighted by an outdoor bar and grill similar to the third base-side Tiki Bar. The rightfield section was also connected to the outfield grass berm area for easy access throughout the facility. The scoreboard was upgraded to include a larger screen and no replays highlights in HD.[5]
