The historic ballpark opened on June 4, 1914 as the Daytona City Island Ballpark. It consisted of a baseball field and set of wooden bleachers. In the 1920's, a road circling the ballpark was built to accommodate the growing number of spectators who were traveling to the ballpark by automobile. A grandstand with a press box was built behind home plate to replace the original wooden bleachers along with two additional covered sections of grandstands along the first base line. A bleacher section along the third base line was added shortly after the first renovation in the 1950's. The present day grandstand and press box were built in 1962. A home team clubhouse was constructed down the left field line in 1972 to accommodate the Montreal Expos. In 1973 left field bleachers, with a capacity of 2,500 seats, were installed. The park was renamed Jackie Robinson Ballpark in 1989 as the stadium served as host to the first racially integrated game in baseball history.

The Daytona Cubs played here for 22 years.

The 2015 season will be the first season with the Cincinnati Reds affiliation.

A team store is located in the ballpark during the season, in the off season, a satellite team store in located in the Daytona Tortugas front office at 110 E. Orange Ave. Directly south of the ballpark.

An average ballpark, but of course nostalgic because of the ties to Jackie Robinson. We just happened to be walking by during a college game and stopped in. Great location, in the heart of downtown shops, in between canals. I'm sure it would be fun to take in a Tortugas game as well.

I was excited to catch an event in the Jackie Robinson Ball Park when i was in Daytona. The ballpark was a good size and the seating was comfortable. I really enjoyed the history around the ballpark though. On the outer ring, there are pictures and stories from the life of Jackie Robinson. It was an exciting read and walk... More

Lots of history here. This is where Jackie broke the color barrier. The grandstands take you back to the good old days. Park facilities were recently upgraded, very nice bar areas and good food. Take me out to the ballgame. Unfortunately our Cubbies left after 22 years here, but a new affiliate starts next season.

What a beautiful little ballpark! Shaded picnic tables by concession stand, kids play area, interesting info about Jackie Robinson. The night we visited, kids got free meals. Charmingly corny, small-town type activities between innings ( "Dirtiest car in the parking lot contest" The prize: a free car wash, of course!) All the seats are close to the action, and fans...

Went to the Blues Festival. Shady stands, thanks very much. Clean restrooms. Easy parking and could walk back to the beach-front hotel.
