Ballpark of the Palm Beaches is the spring training ballpark for the Washington Nationals at 5444 N Haverhill Rd, West Palm Beach, FL 33407.

Those bags will go through their bag check at the gate to ensure they can enter the venue. 


Here is the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches bag policy guide for your next game or event.

  • Fanny packs (can’t exceed 9″ x 7″ x 4)


My Clear Bag Recommendation for Stadiums

When I go to different stadiums and need to bring a bag, I tend to opt for my clear fanny pack for a few reasons. First, most venues have a clear bag policy in place that is 12″ x 12″ x 12″. Therefore, the only bag that you can bring inside the stadium needs to be clear. Second, I tend to bring a few things to the game to help me record the food, parking situation, and bag policy at the stadium. Since I’m bringing a few things to the game, I need one place to store everything, so I don’t have many things in my pocket. Third, wearing a fanny pack isn’t very big, so it doesn’t take up much space for me as I walk around the stadium. The clear fanny pack that I got for stadium is from Amazon and it cost around $14 when I got it.

How Does the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches Review the Bag?

If you must bring a diaper bag (or similar type) to the venue, you will go through an additional security check at the gate. The security check mainly consists of the team reviewing the diaper bag and ensuring no prohibited items are inside it. The same security inspection will occur for a small clutch purse.

However, the stadium security staff can turn away any bag at the gate. Therefore, try to bring a small medical bag (preferably one that is clear) to help get that through the bag check inspection.
