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.

Nice and clean ballpark! Not a bad seat in the house unless your behind a poll from the overhead covering, but its okay because you get to sit where ever you want, except the first 2 rows (those are VIP seats). Belly Buster Monday is the time to hit up the ballpark. Nothing like a baseball game and all you... More

My husband and I have been to several baseball games at Jackie Robinson Ballpark and enjoyed the game, the food, the crowd and all the activities they have during the game. Easy parking and priced just right if you are on a budget. Great family fun for the young, not so young and even us that are not young at... More

We went to the stadium knowing a little bit of the information but there was a lot of information about Jackie Robinson. They had very simple exhibits but very powerful about much of an athlete Robinson was. We didn't watch the game until about the 6th inning. Very enjoyable experience. Baseball fans have to have this on their list. Excellent.

I had an absolute blast at "The Jack". It is a very small ballpark which has stands that stretch only slightly past the dugouts on both sides. There is a casual seating area down the right field line and other than that nothing more than the expected vendors around the periphery of the ballpark. Parking is free and tickets are... More

Small local gathering for games. Friendly staff and on Saturday they have the Farmers Market and Beach street cafes open up. Definitely a keeper.

I was able to spend unique time at Jackie Robinson Ballpark while my grandfather was the Cubs official score keeper. Every time I was there the environment was extremely friendly and enjoyable. A night at this ballpark makes for a great night.

An average ballpark, but of course nostalgic because of the ties to Jackie Robinson. We just happened to be walking by during a college game and stopped in. Great location, in the heart of downtown shops, in between canals. I'm sure it would be fun to take in a Tortugas game as well.
