Attraction details
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.

This is a wonderful facility! Can sit in shaded area if not full....general admission prices apply to all seats. Cheap beer (especially after 7th inning!) and good hot-dogs. A fun way to spend an evening!

Saw a Cubs minor league game. Very enjoyable. Stadium is beautiful and the parking was easy. Not much shade in the stadium, but a great time.

First time at a ballgame (we're English), our ignorance was a source of amusement to those seated next to us - but they were happy to tell us what was going on and basic rules. Lots of places to get a drink and snacks, of course, and overall a great introduction to an American institution which we enjoyed.

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.

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.
