Free admission to watch Rookie ball in the summer. Great stadium and seats. Almost as good as Camden Yards. Cant beat the weather.

Good seats, reasonable prices, decent snacks and beverages, enough restrooms, and usually great weather...what's not to like? When in Sarasota I like to see the "O's" spring training in this clean stadium which has some character-not too small nor too large so it's just right. If Camden yards is a cathedral (45,000 ppl) then this Ed Smith chapel (8,500 ppl)... More

What could be finer than to spend a sunny afternoon at the ball park watching the Orioles Spring Training. The Ed Smith Stadium has been redesigned like the ball parks of old. You get a very good view of the action on the field from every seat. The hot dogs, peanuts and beer make you feel like you are in... More

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.
