“Great place to watch a ball game”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

Easy and close parking, nice concessions, seats close to the field. This is the way all minor league ball parks should be,

“Wow, what a great job on the re-do.”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

I am not an Orioles fan, but what they and the City of Sarasota did to renovate Ed Smith Stadium is remarkable. Truly first class. Four stars in that it doesn't rank to the level of the Yankees in Tampa, but very, very few spring training sites do.

“So proud of the Stadium”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

As a resident of Sarasota I am so very proud of this stadium. The city did a wonderful job in renovations for the Baltimore Orioles. It's a great little spring training stadium...even better when the home team wins.

I've always liked Ed Smith Stadium, but since it has been remodeled, it is awesome! Even the ushers are nice now. Great place to spend a Spring afternoon

“Wow! What an overhaul! The new stadium is awesome!”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

I think this is why the Orioles are doing so well this year. The new stadium is beautiful and no doubt will attract new venues to the area. Not a bad seat in the house and really great new food. Take me out to the ball game is right!
