Stirring the echoes of the Boys of Summer
Jul 2021
If you are not like me, an old guy and a baseball fan, then this is just one of the numerous athletic complexes that have proliferated in recent years to attract the youth sports/travel team crowd. But if you are like me and can remember the Boys of Summer (2 to 9: Campanella, Hodges, Robinson, Cox, Reese, Pafko, Snider, Furillo), you know what I mean about the nostalgia that permeates this place. The golf course used by the players to idle away non-baseball spring training hours is gone, but Holman Stadium remains, as do original batting cages built in hangars (Dodgertown was constructed on an old naval air station), and streets are named for Dodger greats. The hallways in an administrative building serve as a sort of museum, and you might get a chance to see some baseball, too, if one of the youth tournaments periodically hosted is going on. Spending an hour or so here is a good way to get a sense of the history of Vero Beach and the Dodgers, so I recommend it for everyone, but especially baseball fans.

CAN'T SMELL BASEBALL ANYMORE
Aug 2019
I guess this place used to really be something to be proud of. Now kinda an eyesore of past losses. Not sure how a lil town like this could ever let them leave...Weak city management? Spineless leadership? Just plain crazy? I mean it's not like there's anything else there...?...I suppose they didn't need that extra $20,000,000.00 every year + a place to be proud of.

It used to be a nice place
Jun 2019 • Friends
When the Dodgers were there it was great.. Now it's a bunch of kids playing ball with some coaches that act like kids. If you ever saw Bad News Bears there you go.. Some girls softball is fun to watch if you like yelling all of the time and like temps into the 90s that can burn you in 10 min.. If you think that's fun then have at it.. It seems that everything that dies in Florida is Historic. Dodgers are gone live with it..

Took an excellent tour with lady who works there in media.
Mar 2019 • Solo
We were fortunate that this was during a brief instant where a large group was not in residence so we could see everything there. An amazing place. I have lived here for 10 years and have never visited there before. A mistake as I loved every minute of the tour. Our leader was a spectacular docent and gave us a great history lesson as well as answering all our questions. Do go!!

Historic Baseball Experience
Mar 2019 • Family
High schoolers can play on Historic Dodgertown field. The Stadium is loved and well-maintained. Not a bad seat in the house to watch the games. You can tell the employees love baseball and for the full experience they provide umpires, colorful announcing and scoreboard keeping for teams. Batting cages, lodging and cafeteria food on property for teams, but there is a hotel right outside the gate for families. Better yet, I suggest moms and dads stay 15 mins away on Vero Beach. 🏖 Enjoy baseball fun in FL sun.⚾️

Great Historical Ballpark
Mar 2019 • Family
If you like baseball history this place is a must see. There is history everywhere here. I especially like the old black and white photos in the main building. Holman Stadium is a little worse for wear now but again tons of history with the historical plaques in the concourse. Top notch facility for teams and fans alike.

great facility
Feb 2019 • Family
We went there to watch our son play for a week with his school program. It was his 3rd year and our first to walk this facility after hearing it from him the past two year. This is a baseball lover dream facility. The fields are professionaly kept and the site is super clean. Missing a bit of shades to watch the games during the day around field 2 but nothing bad.

Nostalgia
Dec 2018 • Couples
We pulled in the parking lot of the complex and the gate was open so we drove to the ball park. Not a person in sight so we took a stroll to the field and got a beautiful view of the field. We just imagined what took place on that field years ago. They have a display of pictures of Dodgers and Hall of Fame players who played on the field. A lot of baseball history took place on these grounds.

We miss watching the spring training!
Jul 2018 • Family
We miss watching the spring training of the Dodgers! Historic place and in the past we watched some great spring training games! Now it for the youth training/traveling sports. Get a Major League Baseball team back as we loved attending the games. It's a great, historic ballpark!

It is all about separating you from your money
Jun 2017
Always count on the old guys there taking $10 to park you vehicle. They even make the college spring training guys pay. Not much protection from the sun and they will not let you bring your own comfort items into the park with you. The old retired guys working there like to push their weight around and love to boss you if you try to pick up a ball on the ground. I never go over there anymore because it has just too many bossy rules and old goats.
