“Great Baseball Stadium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

First Rate venue.

Good parking availability.

Very nice service from all staff.

Be careful, and be sure to ask for the game you want, where are your seats. For afternoon game unless you have protective clothing and hats and sunblock, behind home plate and up the stands the direct sunlight is really deadly.

“So proud of the Stadium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

As a resident of Sarasota I am so very proud of this stadium. The city did a wonderful job in renovations for the Baltimore Orioles. It's a great little spring training stadium...even better when the home team wins.

I've always liked Ed Smith Stadium, but since it has been remodeled, it is awesome! Even the ushers are nice now. Great place to spend a Spring afternoon

“Wow! What an overhaul! The new stadium is awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I think this is why the Orioles are doing so well this year. The new stadium is beautiful and no doubt will attract new venues to the area. Not a bad seat in the house and really great new food. Take me out to the ball game is right!

“Orioles Spring Training”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Recently revamped Ed Smith Stadium is a great place to take in a ball game. Not a bad seat in the house (although you may want to be sure your seat is under cover on sunny days), the ball park is easily accessible, clean and very fan-friendly. Play Ball!
