The historic ballpark opened on June 4, 1914 as the Daytona City Island Ballpark. It consisted of a baseball field and set of wooden bleachers. In the 1920's, a road circling the ballpark was built to accommodate the growing number of spectators who were traveling to the ballpark by automobile. A grandstand with a press box was built behind home plate to replace the original wooden bleachers along with two additional covered sections of grandstands along the first base line. A bleacher section along the third base line was added shortly after the first renovation in the 1950's. The present day grandstand and press box were built in 1962. A home team clubhouse was constructed down the left field line in 1972 to accommodate the Montreal Expos. In 1973 left field bleachers, with a capacity of 2,500 seats, were installed. The park was renamed Jackie Robinson Ballpark in 1989 as the stadium served as host to the first racially integrated game in baseball history.

The Daytona Cubs played here for 22 years.

The 2015 season will be the first season with the Cincinnati Reds affiliation.

A team store is located in the ballpark during the season, in the off season, a satellite team store in located in the Daytona Tortugas front office at 110 E. Orange Ave. Directly south of the ballpark.

While visiting family in Daytona, it was one of the first things suggested to do that would accommodate our party of four adults, two teenagers, and a two year old. What a nice change of pace to this stadium that remains unchanged by our ever-changing society. The seats are bleachers on one side and the other seats are underneath a... More

We took our two boys on Monday. It was all you could eat for free. Hamburg, hot dogs, pizza and popcorn. We enjoyed it! Wish we would of been there a little earlier for VIP seating. But really not a bad seat in the house.

Great place to watch a minor league baseball game! Belly Buster Monday's are always a great bargain! Games are in usually in the evening so the temps are down which is usually comfortable to watch the games!

Quaint little historic ballpark. Lots of history. Reasonable prices on food and drinks, especially on promo nights. Easy parking, entry, and seating. Good for families.

Very nice baseball field. Lots of history. Plenty of food options. Careful where you sit as when sun sets, it gets hot! Also, watch where you park. Cars often get hit with baseballs that make it out of the stadium.

Like most minor league ballparks, this one catered to the kids in the stands. Lots of between inning activities where they'd bring a couple kids on to the field for races or a game. Smaller ballpark that could use more shade. We went on an all you can eat night and that was a great deal. All the pizza, hamburgers,... More

Husband and I were in town and always wanted to go to a ballgame here. We went on a Monday, so $12 bucks a person gets you all you can eat hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza and popcorn! What a blast! Very affordable! Nice looking field! Staff was friendly! Can't beat $2 parking and lots of history! Loved it!
