Owner description: 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.

“Daytona Cubs Baseball - you gotta go!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

We've gone to watch the Daytona Cubs play three times now... it's been a great night each time.
The field is immaculate, the players hustle and make great plays, the crowd interaction, especially the kids brought out onto the field is fun, Cubbie schmoozes in the stands for pics and high fives, all in all, a truly family friendly activity.
If you go and have younger kids with, speak to a staff member to see if they can participate in any of the on field kids activities.
They have handicap parking just a few steps away from the east entrance, $2.00 per car.
If you can, we recommend paying for VIP box seating right up front.
Keep your eye out for "Lizzy" the Gecko watching the game from the safety fence behind the visitors dugout. She has a couple of human friends who have signs, bells and generally try to make the visiting team miserable.

“It doesn't get any better than minor league baseball.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Belly Buster Mondays are awesome. For a nominal price of $11.00 you get admission to the game and all you can eat hot dogs, hamburgers, popcorn, and Papa Johns pizza. Ny myself or with a slew of friends the Daytona Cubs are always entertaining.

“Great place for a baseball game”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Had a great time watching the Daytona Cubs play a game at this park. The food and drink prices were very reasonable, the park has a great feel to it. Loved the manual scoreboard! Would highly recommend this for anyone visiting Daytona.

Very nice field, clean and close by the beaches. There is a park across the street with swings and tables facing the river which makes for a great day

“Simple, yet fantastic for baseball lovers.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014 via mobile

My almost three year old boy is addicted to baseball, and he knew about Jackie Robinson from the movie, 42. This is a simple home plate and first base path that kids can run. There are several displays with information about Robinson. Most people will read the signs and be done in less than half an hour. My son would have loved to spend the entire day there running the base. I'd encourage people to stop for the historic perspective and significance.
