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.

I just love baseball and watching these games is thrilling. This ballpark has some much history. When I cannot get to a game I listen on the radio......as every game both home and away are on an AM station. I especially love Belly Buster Monday..........and they also have one day a month when you can bring your dog.

As you'd expect for a minor league ball park, it's pretty snall, but that makes for a cozy game experience. Manual scoreboard is worth checking out, as of course is the jackie Robinson stuff. Thirsty Thursday is a pretty cheap beer night - $4.50 for a 32oz of craft/import beer is pretty good deal.

Even if it is minor league this is still very entertaining. If you have kids use the bleachers on third base side as it's easy to spread out. Food is way above average and the beer assortment is great

We caught a game on July 23. $1 beer night. Food was great, and priced fairly. Stadium clean, and a great place to watch prospects of the Reds organization and visiting teams. My sons did the baseball camp for a day with the players, and they had a blast. This is a first class organization, and very much worth a... More

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
