“Awesome for any Phillies fan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2011

Was at the opening game of the Phills spring training against Florida State University. It was not crowded so it was easy to walk around and take in all that the stadium offered. This is a bright, clean and open stadium.
The usual variety of food stalls were present which were as costly as the ones offered in Philadelphia. My plain hot dog was tasty but I think I paid like $3.50 for it. My husband got the Phillies cheese steak, which he enjoyed, especially the bun. There are a couple of beer stands with a nice selection.
Make sure you get there early to obtain good parking which is across the street, and to see the batting practices. You can go down to the first rows behind either dugouts or in the first rows next to the dugouts. Some of the Phillies players will come over to sign autographs. They also do this at the end of the game. Make sure you have a pen for them to use. Don't keep yelling their names. Be respectfull and you will have a better chance of obtaining their signature. I have seen them signing everything from balls to programs. It is exciting to get so close to the players.
The gift shop has a varied collection of items. I got a couple of Clearwater Phillies Spring Training shirts. It is not a big store and tends to get crowded. Prices are not cheap. There are no dressing rooms. However they do allow you to try shirts on over your own and there are mirrors on the columns.
All the people who worked there from the concession stand attendants to the ticket takers, program seller, security were very pleasant and friendly. It was a wonderful first time experience for my husband and myself.

“LOVE IT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2011

This is such a great stadium. We love sitting in the "Berm" section. This is the grassy area behind the outfield. Bring a blanket and enjoy the game. We enjoy walking around the stadium. I love to watch the Threshers or the Phillies during Spring Training. The tickets are cheap!

“Great baseball and family entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2010

After improperly reading the Yankees schedule in Tampa (they were out of town) we headed to Clearwater for a game. We got there about 10 minutes after the game started, (Parking was still easy & cheap with a nearly packed stadium) and asked for the best seats...$9 per seat...three rows behind home plate. Great seats, 2 for 1 drinks, wonderful facility, all that together with bands and kids activities after the game. On Thursdays, the stadium stays open til 11PM (maybe later) for games, music and overall good family fun. (even without kids, the drink prices can't be beat - so a fun cheap nite can be had). A last minute great night that just happened turned into a surprising highlight. We are going back to Orlando this summer and will definitely repeat this stop.

“Phantastic Phillies Spring Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2010

This beautiful, clean, family-friendly stadium has great hot dogs, condiments, kids playground and large clean rest rooms. Merchandise was reasonably priced with clearance bargains a bonus! Great seats and site lines. Just a great day in the sun with our Fightn' Phils!

“A night at the ball park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2009

Took the whole family to catch a Class "A" advanced ball game. The home team Clearwater Threshers. What a beautiful little stadium. Very fan friendly. $2.00 parking very close to the entrance and $9.00 seats are the best in the house. I arrived about 15 minutes before game time and told the ticket person I wanted the 5 best seats in the house. For $45.00 we sat 4 rows from the field behind home plate. The food was very reasonable, and it happened to be a "Thirsty" Thursday night which meant all beverages were 2 for 1. A really great atmosphere to watch and enjoy a ball game featuring some up and coming talent.
