Another great Orioles game experience! Staff is kind and really kid friendly! Stadium is compact but feels spacious and all seats are good seats. Lots of places to walk around and still see the game. I'd like to be able to get a Natty Bo...didn't see it there. Parking could be better. We paid the $20 to park at the... More

My wife and I went to a spring training game and were amazed at the stadium. I remembered going many years ago to Fort Lauderdale and that was a great little ballpark but Ed Smith Stadium was great! The place was packed and our seats were very good. Prices for food were reasonable and the hot dogs with kraut were... More

Beautiful park, clean grounds and bathrooms. Helpful courteous friendly staff. All seats have backs (not bench seating). We parked for 9.00 right in front of stadium in the north lot. Rain was schedlued so we were able to buy cheap tix right away. Sat behind the dugout. Again, beautiful park. Even in the rain!

This stadium is one of my favorites. They have Cuban Sandwiches and good drinks. Seats all seemed good, and was just a nice experience.

We visited Ed Smith for 2 Orioles Spring Training games. Wow! What a great stadium! We were not sure what to expect since we really loved the old Ft Lauderdale location. This was our first trip to ST since the O's moved from Ft Lauderdale. We were amazed at the excellent venue. The breezeway on the upper level is fantastic.... More

The Oriole way is alive and well here. Everything about this place is first class. The wife and I traveled here for some Spring Training games and were thrilled with the new venue. It is worth the trip, particularly after the horrid winter in PA. A Fifty-degree difference. Parking is close but a traffic jam when the game lets out.... More

There is not a bad seat at Ed Smith Stadium. It felt just like we were home! All of the folks who worked there were wonderfully friendly. It was very affordable and a great day at the ball park!

Modern stadium, small enough that you could be up close to the players. It was sunny and hot but a relief from the northern winter.

The stadium itself is terrific. Recently updated, it is impressive. However, you are likely to roast in the hot sunshine. Very few seats are shaded. (Basically the uppermost last 5 rows) Parking is another problem. Plan on arriving an hour or more early if you want to park anywhere near the stadium. Although the food is tasty and the pricing...
