What a nice place to watch a ballgame, have a dog and beer..... especially when it is cold up North. We do try to sit on the first base line as it tends to get more shade than the 3rd base line.

This is a completely renovated stadium that is home to the Baltimore Orioles. If you enjoy baseball, then you will enjoy this stadium. They have great seats that include the drink holders which is a big plus at a ball park. The concourse has two levels where you can grab a bite to eat and they even have a World... More

Recently remodeled so clean and not so large that you get a bad seat. I'm from Maryland so I love the Orioles! They are fan appreciative and willing to talk or sign autographs. Great food at fair price.

I plan my winter vacation around MLB Spring Training...Ed Smith Stadium is such a beautiful, clean and welcoming park. The staff there are quite possibly the friendliest bunch I have ever met. I spend a lot of time at Florida's Spring Training facilities and by far, Ed Smith is my favourite venue!

Baseball fans enjoy the games that are played in the so-called Grapefruit League stadium called Ed Smith Stadium. Great games, enthusiastic crowds, and a day of fun summarize an afternoon outing of baseball.

The stadium is a mini-Camden Yards but the sun is brutal on the third base side. Best chance for some shade is the upper seats on first base side. Sure wish there were more night games. I think that would be wonderful for the fans and the players!

A group of about 30 from my office attended a night spring training Orioles game here. The Orioles spent a great deal of money renovating this stadium and it is beautiful. There is plenty of parking nearby and a variety of food options available. Great way to spend a day or night for a reasonable price.
