“Fun relaxing way to spend an afternoon.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

If you're a baseball fan this place is awesome. Great family fun, kids stuff, fireworks, etc. if you don't love baseball you'll still have fun. They've have food vendor changes that may need improving still as far as choice and price but you can find something. Beautiful park and very clean. Great prices to get in and not a bad seat in the place!

“A beautiful place to enjoy baseball”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Silver Cross Field is a great place to enjoy baseball. The price can't be beat, from $6-$10 for seats. The ballpark is really, really nice, with a beautiful playing field. They have the best fireworks EVER on a routine basis. Silver Cross is very family oriented . They very often have special events and features, entertainment for kids. Parking is right around the park, and the police presence makes it very safe. Traffic is well controlled in the area. The ballpark offers many very good food vendors, they have family picnic area, box seats, lawn seats. What ever you could want is going to be there if you like baseball and the fun atmosphere of baseball fans. The pro teams charge $60 a seat, and sometimes are not much better players than those in this league. Give it a try!

“A fine ballpark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

If you want to visit a very nice ballpark that is above what you'd expect for a minor league team, then this is the place. Good and plentiful seating, a convenient downtown location and certainly reasonable admission price. You can even watch the freight trains rumble by if the game is slow.

“Been coming hear since it opened”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

I feel for the new owners of the Slammers. This place just does not have the atmosphere that the Jackhammers had. They do not do as much with the crowd. Because of low attendance a bunch of the food / drink stands close early. The food is not as good as when the Jackhammers where here and it is more expensive for the experience. A tub of cotton candy is almost double what it is at Sox park. Baseball is still good but the entertainment value just is not there.

“Great small-town venue for sports!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Joliet is proud of this gem! Some don't care for the team name "SLAMMERS" but that is just how one looks at it! Instead of guys in the "slammer" (Joliet has its prison), think of grand-SLAMMERS in baseball!
Entertaining and FUN!
