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.

Lots of history here. This is where Jackie broke the color barrier. The grandstands take you back to the good old days. Park facilities were recently upgraded, very nice bar areas and good food. Take me out to the ballgame. Unfortunately our Cubbies left after 22 years here, but a new affiliate starts next season.

The Daytona Cubs have officially changed their Minor League Affiliation to the Cincinnati Reds. Nothing will change from a fans perspective outside of a new logo and mascot. We will continue to have our weekly promotions such as: Belly Buster Monday's, Silver Sluggers, Thirsty Thursdays, Firework Saturdays, etc. A new mascot and logo will be announced in the weeks to...

What a beautiful little ballpark! Shaded picnic tables by concession stand, kids play area, interesting info about Jackie Robinson. The night we visited, kids got free meals. Charmingly corny, small-town type activities between innings ( "Dirtiest car in the parking lot contest" The prize: a free car wash, of course!) All the seats are close to the action, and fans...

Went to the Blues Festival. Shady stands, thanks very much. Clean restrooms. Easy parking and could walk back to the beach-front hotel.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed a Daytona Cubs game last week at Jackie Robinson Ballpark. With a coupon from a local Walgreens, we paid only $5 per person to sit anywhere besides the "VIP section" of course. Casual, friendly atmosphere - great for families & friends. Food was low-priced, and only average - but it was $1.00 draft beer night for... More

Nice place to take the family, they have food, drinks (also alcoholic drinks if you desire too). You can bring a cushion, they have aluminum bleachers, but also bucket seats in some parts too

They just started charging $2.00... More
