“Cincinnati Reds play ball ?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

Never saw a Cincy Red HIT the ball, let alone know how to
play....but Teams from New York, PA, MA et al have done
wonders in this Field. County of Sarasota sacrificed monies
that were for other projects to help local citizens JUST SO THAT
Baseball players could "do their thing" & tourists in-season would spend monies here for game enjoyment! Only for fans.
Bring an iced thermous in case you canNOT reach food stand in time for hydrating yourself in the heavy heat.

We try to get to at least one game a year, the new stadium is laid out very nice, hopefully come next season the parking will be a little better.

“Good fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

They have upgraded the stadium and the Orioles are now relevant. Good priced for seats. Very friendly staff as they want you back. Bring the kids and enjoy good old fashioned fun.

“A nice preseason ballpark”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

This really is a nice ballpark. Seating is good, and the facility is clean. The food is average ball park food, and pricey like every other park. Parking is convenient and plentiful. Would definitely go back again.
