Tucked away in the corner of a Tampa/St. Pete suburb, Dunedin Stadium (formerly known as Knology Park) is a facility designed for spring-training needs, not to serve the audience of a Class A Florida State League team. As a result, there's not a lot of excitement surrounding a Dunedin Blue Jays game: the team is perennially next-to-last in Florida State League attendance, and the team doesn't exactly overwhelm their potential audience with a flood of promotions.

SunLife Stadium / Florida Marlins

LandShark Stadium is a great place to catch a football game, but so far unsuccessful in sustaining any kind of fan base for baseball. This will be the final season there for the Florida Marlins.
