BayCare Ballpark opened in 2004 and is the home of Phillies Spring Training and the Clearwater Threshers. The Phillies have been training in Clearwater, Florida, since 1947, the second-longest affiliation between a Major League club and its Spring Training home in baseball. The Carpenter Complex, home to the Paul Owens Training Facility and the David P. Montgomery Baseball Performance Center, was built in 1967. The complex, used in spring training by Phillies Major and Minor League players, also hosts the Phillies' Florida Complex League affiliate and Florida Instructional League.
The ballpark is designed with a classic Floridian architectural style and has the following features:
- A 360-degree main concourse, open to the playing field
- 7,300 fixed seats with grass berm seating for an additional 1,500
- A tiki-hut pavilion in left field
- Group picnic areas, party suites and Club seats
