The ballpark is about a 15-20 minute drive from the airport.  There are Hampton Inn-type places at the exit from the highway for the ballpark, which are about a mile from the ballpark, but there's nothing to do in that area.  There are also hotels in downtown WPB next to the City Walk area, which is about 10 minutes by car from the ballpark.

Good to know since I don't drive - think I'll stick to Charlie and Dave for the Grapefruit League season.

We had no problem using Uber and Lyft between the hotel (the aforementioned Hampton Inn) and the ballpark. Never waited more than about 5 minutes for pickup and the fares were pretty low. You could probably stay closer to City Walk and still uber/lyft back and forth with no problems. Since most games were day games, we didn't feel pressed to find a lot of other stuff to do--- get some dinner (or have it delivered) and enjoy mindless TV and air conditioning.

For road games, there is a Marriott Courtyard right across the street from Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter where the Marlins and Cards play. Bring cash since some of the stadium vendors don't take card and the single ATM is always broken. It's a fair bit harder to get around Port St Lucie (Mets) without a car; Lyft/Uber and traditional taxi coverage is fairly light and the nearest hotel to the ballpark is about 30 minutes walking in the Florida roasting sun.
