“Play Ball”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Space Coast Stadium is a small, intimate stadium, which means it is a great place to watch Spring Training baseball. There isn't a bad seat in the house and if you sit in the first two rows on the first base side you can almost touch the players as they move in and out of the stadium. The food is undistringuished, but it is served relatively quickly and is about the same price as the other Florida baseball venues. Cost of a box seat is less than the price of a ticket in the nose bleed section of most big league ballparks. Parking is easy, though if you drive to the park you willl want to take the interstae to Fiske Blvd and drive to the stadium from there. Driving from the south is more problematic since you have to turn left against the traffic and the local gendarmes who are supposed to be directing traffic seem to have other priorities. One thing I really appreciate about Space Coarst is that they keep the silly games and announcer drivel between innings to a minumum and don't blast you with advertising over the PA system every 5 minutes like some stadiums we could name.

“Washington Nationals Spring Training”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Saw a Saturday day game against Miami and thought the stadium, staff, and location were all top quality. Only complaint was the beer/food prices were too high given the price of the ticket. Hope they adjust the cost to go to the games and have food to make more reasonible.

“Terrible parking experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

The stadium is nice but getting to this facility was a nightmare. Space Coast Stadium sits in a big open field, so you would think parking would be a breeze. Guess again. They have made it as difficult as they possibly can. Plan to wait in very long lines as there is only one giant field and they provide only one entrance. Every vehicle must enter through one entrance and long lines back up in both directions. No signs exist so newcomers have no clue. Police do little to help with this bad situation. There is no on-street or other parking available, so they can nail you for $7 after making you wait in traffic. This is undoubtedly the worst parking situation of any ballpark in America.

“Take me out to the ballgame”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We live fairly close to the stadium and go every chance we get. We either see the Washington Nationals or the Minor League team The Manatees play. Every seat in the stadium is good and you'll enjoy the food they have there. There's even a tiki bar out on the burm in left field. Great fun with the whole family.

“Great team in a so-so facility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Seeing the Washington Nats in spring training was great, but the ball park leaves a lot to be desired. It faces South, which means that 95%+ of the seats are in the sun, which in March is quite strong.
