Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Opening Day”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We made a point to come to the opening game on our trip. Drinks and food were reasonable, and was a good time. Lots to see when you're at a game, band playing outside, contests on the field, saw a marriage proposal, kids played ball outside during game with random kids.

“The cubs won here”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Chicago native it's nice to see cubs win somewhere. Great ballpark and worth a trip. Lots of activities for kids. Thirsty Thursday beer options better than most major league parks. Bud party deck great place to hangout. Upper level under roof best seats as you get a breeze and are out of sun.

“Great little minor league park”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

The Daytona Cubs are enjoyable to watch and the crowd is usually a pretty good size. They utilize a lot of good game to game promotions.

“Great fun at the right price!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Baseball season means fun at the ball park. Lots of fun for young and old. "The Jack" is an old time ballpark with some "modern" touches. Playground for the kids and some between innings activities that entertain everyone. Beautiful views from bleachers. One of the least expensive forms of entertainment in the area!

“great”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Lot of low cost fun. Even if you don't dig baseball, still a fun night out. Cheap beer, good eats at cheap price. Little kids really like it.
