“Fast ball in the side pocket”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Went to Frisco, TX for a mini-vacation (weekend only) and fell in love with "the game" all over again. Having been to the baseball field in Arlington, TX so many times I had not even thought about Frisco and the Dr. Pepper Ballpark and Arena (not too much of a hockey fan). So when my daughter and I went to this attraction it was a very pleasant sight. The Ballpark all white and gleaming in the sun with the Dr. Pepper Arena's Texas star looming over the Dr. Pepper sign and the famous "water slide" exit coming off the Toll road of 121. This was a great sight And any great sight requires great food---a stroll along Parkwood gets you to La Madeleine Country French Cafe and their delicious tomato basil soup and variety of "dainties". After which you can go next door to Paciugo for wedding cake Italian galato. The traffic was great for a weekend if you come out Parkwood instead of 289 where ALL the traffic seems to just creep along--probably going to Stonebriar Mall. Our visit was one I will make again since I was re-acquainted with Frisco, or should I say, the "new" Frisco and it's "fast ball" of a ballpark in the "side pocket" of Stonebriar Mall.

“great atmosphere but cheesy at points”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

The stadium was amazing, it has a southern charm like nothing I have ever seen in a sports venue. The prices for seats and concessions were very reasonable. My only complaint about the stadium is that the seats and rows are way too close together. I felt like my knees were in my chest while watching the games. The only other complaint I would have overall is that the music and in between innings entertainment was very lacking and cheesy. I prefer college baseball venues throughout the state to what they tried to accomplish.

“Great venue for a minor league ballpark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

the team is the Frisco Rough Riders. I think they are the double A affiliate for the Rangers but they could be the Single A as well.

If the stadium isn't brand new it can't be more than a few years old. The stadium is spotless and it is a great place to watch a game plus the rough riders do a great job offering value and a great product. I have sat in a suite and normal seats before and had a great time in both.
The staff was very helpful with everything from helping you find your seats to making sure everyone is having a good time.

We had a great time with the whole family watching the Rough Riders. The stadium was so clean and the fans were polite - very family-friendly.
