The Jupiter Hammerheads are a minor league baseball team based in Jupiter, Florida, named for the hammerhead shark.

The team, which plays in the Florida State League, is the Class A Advanced affiliate of the Miami Marlins major-league club.

The Hammerheads call Roger Dean Stadium home. Opened in 1998, the park seats 7,200 fans. They share the facility with the Palm Beach Cardinals, also of the FSL.

On May 23, 2011 The Hammerheads gained national attention after playing in a 23 inning game against the Clearwater Threshers.[1]

In 2012, the Hammerheads won the 2nd Half Division Title and went on to defeat the St. Lucie Mets in a decisive Game 3[2] of the Division Championship Series to capture their first ever Division crown. Jupiter would lose in the FSL Championship[3] in the fifth and final game against the Lakeland Flying Tigers, despite holding a 2-1 lead after Game 3.[4]
