This is a good spring training stadium and location. They are home to the Baltimore Orioles, and they take good care of the stadium. Good place to see a spring training if you are in the Sarasota area

Ed Smith Stadium is a lovely place to see a ballgame! It's newly renovated, it has many concession stand options, and there's not a bad seat in the house! 5 points all the way!

We attended both at this site. The ball game was fun, we Won. The concert with the Sarasota Symphony is NOT to be missed. It was the 3rd year in a row we attended and will do so again this coming season.

Sarasota has hosted a number of major league baseball teams for Spring Training since I was a kid here in the 1960's. Following in the footsteps of the Chicago Whitesox, Kansas City Royals and others, the current team - the Baltimore Orioles - has renewed interest in sports in our sunny city. The City of Sarasota spent millions revamping Ed... More

A friend had an extra ticket to the Orioles spring training baseball game. This place is beautiful, clean, convenient, and offers all types of beverages and baseball park food. We had a few craft beers and sat in the sun and enjoyed a great game of baseball!

Ed Smith is the spring training home of the Baltimore Orioles. It is a very nice and comfortable place to see a game. We were not there for a ball game but saw the Sarasota Symphony there in a wonderful Orchestra in the park. It was a fun place to visit.

As oriole fans, born and bred in baltimore, we were thrilled to see the Orioles in Sarasota. The stadium is great, but the days can be very sunny and very hot. Make sure you sit on the shady side or in the seats that are higher up (they get the shade first. Evening games are the most comfortable , temperature... More

We made our annual Spring Training trip to see our Os. This stadium can't be beat for watching games. The staff is always working to help the visitors and keep the place running smoothly. We were able to take a picnic supper in for each of our games and eat at the picnic tables on the 3rd base concourse.

I brought my Dad, Step-mother and Wife to this park to see the Baltimore Orioles play the Atlanta Braves and I am not sure how much of the game we saw because we were so impressed with the facility; food vendors everywhere, cold beer, grass parking, incredible field, etc. If you love baseball like we do - COME HERE
