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. « less

If you're fortunate enough to be there on a game day, GO. The Dayton Cubs are the 2013 Season champs of their league and play some pretty good ball! If you're 55 or older, like me, you can join their Silver Sluggers group for free games AND get a T-shirt AND free game parking, all for less than $30. What... More

Beware of rain in Daytona! The ballpark is very nice. The prices are good and the cheese fries and funnel cake fries were the best. We had a good time and enjoyed the concessions. The staff was very helpful and friendly. A must do.

I have been going to this ballpark for about ten years, and it's a favorite. It's not flashy, it features a very old first base covered individual seats section and a larger newer open air bench style third base bleachers section. The crowd is usually large, vocal, and family friendly. What really sets the field apart is outside the stadium.... More

Get an ice cold beer (there is a good selection of microbrews), climb up to the top of the bleachers where the cool breeze blows and just behold the beauty of this little jewel of a ballpark and the vistas of the city. Three times during the season they have "dog night" where you can bring your dog to the... More

This is a wonderful facility! Can sit in shaded area if not full....general admission prices apply to all seats. Cheap beer (especially after 7th inning!) and good hot-dogs. A fun way to spend an evening!

Saw a Cubs minor league game. Very enjoyable. Stadium is beautiful and the parking was easy. Not much shade in the stadium, but a great time.
