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.

If you like baseball, you will love going to Jackie Robinson Ballpark. The games are fun, but the activities that go on during innings are a blast. Sometimes it is Belly Buster Night or Silver Streakers NIght with Bingo. Ha! Bingo at a ballgame!! The food is good, too. The information around the park about Jackie Robinson is very informative.

We were traveling with our sons-in-law and they are ball fans. They really enjoyed getting to see the ball field. There are many signs telling the history of Jackie Robinson. It is free to visit the field, which is always a plus.

Coming from a 'major league' city, we had just about given up on seeing live baseball again. Our local church was offering a trip to "Belly Buster Monday" at the Tortugas so we thought we would give it a try. Yes, this is minor league play but the players are highly talented men who want to make it to the... More

One reason the stadium is named for Jackie Robinson is the fact that Daytona Beach was the first Florida city to allow Robinson to play during the 1946 season's spring training. Robinson was playing for the Triple-A Montreal Royals, who were in Florida to play an exhibition game against their parent club, the Brooklyn Dodgers. Both Jacksonville and Sanford refused... More

What an awesome experience. The scoreboard is done by hand and the balls,strikes and outs are done by light bulbs. The stadium is 95 years old. A must visit on the minor league ballpark circuit.

A great venue for our High A ballpark. Newly renovated; great food and prices and of course terrific fireworks each Saturday night home game. Miss Cubbie, but will get used to Shelldon the turtle.

We went when the park was empty but we were still able to walk through the small museum and see and read the different things inside of the park.

This minor league ballpark will take you back in time. A pleasant environment in which to watch a ballgame. This was the first stop for Jackie Robinson in his pro career. Very historic.
