Took our baseball loving nephew to a preseason game. He and his Uncle had a blast! Nice to see a professional team in a small venue.

The Orioles winter home is a great place to watch baseball. Sit on the first base side on a sunny day, or be prepared to broil.

You can up-close to the players as you watch them warm up in the bull pen. The seats are comfortable and every seat has a great view. The $$ used to build this stadium was worth the investment. This is a first class location.

Great place to see your home team particularly if you are from Baltimore. Really nice new ballpark. Baltimore has the best park in baseball at Camden Yards, and Ed Smith Stadium is one of the best if not the best Spring Training Park.

THE place to visit for Spring Training games! See the Baltimore Orioles spring home! It is a beautiful stadium with amazing "baseball food". A wonderful place to get to know all of the rookies and be outdoors.
