ST. LOUIS — The New York Yankees will be among the St. Louis Cardinals' opponents in spring training when they make their first visit to Jupiter, Fla., since 2006.
The Cardinals on Friday released their 32-game Grapefruit League schedule, with the visit by the Yankees on March 7 serving as the highlight. The Yankees last played at Roger Dean Stadium on March 17, 2006.
St. Louis also will play the Yankees on March 11 in Tampa.
The Cardinals' spring-training slate begins Feb. 23 against their co-tenants at Roger Dean Stadium, the Miami Marlins. It ends March 29 against the New York Mets in Port St. Lucie.
The regular season begins April 1 at Arizona.
The Cardinals will play 16 home games and 16 road games in spring training, including four against the Marlins in which they are the "visiting" team. That means St. Louis will play 20 of its 32 games at Roger Dean Stadium.
St. Louis and Miami will meet eight times, including a St. Patrick's Day matchup March 17.
Cardinals pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report to Jupiter on Feb. 12, with their first workout set for Feb. 13. The remainder of the roster will report Feb. 15 and work out for the first time Feb. 16.
