If this was just a baseball stadium, I'd say it's great. However, it's a spring training facility for people to sit back and relax to watch MLB teams train for the upcoming season. If you go to Bradenton, the Pirates facility has a beautiful wooden boardwalk that enables you to walk around the entire field, watch the game on the... More

This stadium was renovated a couple of years ago and it is now better than ever. Honestly you get the feeling that the players are so close that you could reach out and touch them. More covered seating has been provided so you can choose seats out of the direct sunlight. The refreshments are also upgraded. You will definitely enjoy... More

A real treat as a Baltimore fan - Camden Yards South. Simply an enchanting place to watch a game. Food was typical ballpark fare, good beer selections (wich OP@CY would have the beer fridge thing). Architecture was amazing, vibe was laid back. Can't wait to go back.

Chicago White Sox winter training location. Comfy and well kept, great place to see a game. Nothing fancy but all the amenities are there, and lots of history.

The Baltimore Orioles spend the month of March playing their spring games in this modern and fan friendly stadium.

Beautiful stadium! We arrived early & were able to hang out by the O's dugout. Buck Showalter, and several players stopped & chatted with my daughter & me, and also signed her hat & posed for photos! There was a wide variety of food & beverage choices ~ I had a soft shell crab sandwich from a Maryland-themed food stand... More

Probably a top 5 facility in my book...My buddy and I came here for spring training for a Orioles game with friends and the service was good and the prices reasonable. We had to park a bit away from the stadium so parking is a bit challenged. My top 2 favorite spring training ballparks are still Brighthouse Field (Go Phils!)... More

Attended the last game for the Oriole's spring training and had a great time. This park is just a scaled down model of any great outdoor major league stadium. Good food, good service, fun atmosphere…it cannot be beat. If you ever visited Ed Smith when the White/Red Sox, Reds were there, the 32 Million dollar renovation the ended in 2011... More

It was worth the trip, the sitting in traffic, the almost getting lost. Please make sure you input the right address if you're out of town and need to use a GPS as we almost drove an extra 10 km because the GPS couldn't find the right address. It was really something being outside, enjoying the great weather. The stadium... More
