We saw two games here and loved it! The prices are very reasonable and the staff is very friendly. We can't wait to go back next year!

Biggest issue with the ballpark is there are no markings for grass parking lots (no Lot A, B or C signs, etc.) This ended up being a big deal for us when we couldn't find our rental car after a crowded night game. Thankfully, we did find Mike Kramer, a gracious ballpark volunteer. Mike took on our problem as his own and did everything possible to help us find our car. Unfortunately, Mike's kindness was offset by a surly, condescending security cop. This fellow was beyond rude, even when we explained that Mike was trying to help us find our lost car. We didn't get his name (too bad) but he was stocky, balding, had a moustache, and appeared to be the one in charge. Since he didn't give us a chance to answer his nastily-delivered question, I will do so now: No, your poorly-placed orange cones certainly do NOT clearly indicate where you expect traffic to go, especially at night and on grass. And I'm sure Goodyear and Arizona appreciate your "warm" welcome for out-of-town visitors, especially those in need of assistance. Whatever they are paying you, it is too much.

This was our second year in a row attending games here. As we learned from our experience last year, its best to get there a little early to make sure you get a parking space that's not a long ways away. This was probably exaggerated by the face that both years were firework games.

The stadium itself is quite nice I think. All of the seats offer a great view of the action. We have only attended night games, so I can not comment on how the sun exposure is on the stands. They do have a nice large lawn area in the outfield for GA seating. It is comparable to most minor league stadiums I have been to. The biggest drawback is the lack of an area for the players to sign autographs, other than down the baseline seats.

They have grass fields down the baselines (above the seats) for kids to run around on, but still allow the parents to see the game and the kids. My favorite part would have to be the whiffle ball fields they put in these areas.

The food was average ballpark fare. Hot dogs, nachos, etc... were average. They do have a nice variety of food with the ice cream trucks, shaved ice stand, skyline chili stand, etc...

Overall, I enjoy watching the games and there isn't a bad seat in this place. I would rank it my third favorite spring training facility in Arizona (behind Camelback Ranch and Salt River Fields).

Visited 3 times during Spring Training 2013
Really enjoyed the park. Small and family friendly.
The seating we had was in the "club seating" which provides shade and a drinks/food service - great idea in the Arizona heat.
Only downside was we didn't see the Indians win a game :(

After spending a week dedicated to watching Spring Training baseball games, this ballpark is at the bottom of the list. The majority of the seating is in direct sun. The ushers are not trained toward customer service. Common sense would suggest that fans be allowed to relocate to shade on oppressive days; but, the ushers are enforcers which is silly since the ballpark is always only half full. Lastly, the location is off the beaten track and situated in the middle of nowhere. Shame on the Reds and Indians for being so thoughtless to their fans.
