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.

Really enjoyed my time at the ballpark. I liked that they made the game interactive with the bingo cards. I am not a huge baseball fan, but my husband is. Food was great and the service was nice. Wish the team was better though. Nice statue of Jackie Robinson in the front too.

As new Florida residents looking for an interesting 4th of July, we stumbled on minor league baseball with the Daytona Cubs (Chicago Cub franchise) in Daytona Beach, Florida. What a great ballpark! It's "old" by the standards of most professional baseball venues, but that was part of the fun. We sat right behind home plate in general admission seating, enjoying the covered grandstands, complete with vintage, oscillating, wall fans to keep the air moving. In lieu of a modern "jumbotron" or other high tech, animated display, the scoreboard consisted of a guy in center field who manually kept track of the score, posting cards on a board inning by inning. The place was packed, and later we were told that it's the most popular minor league park in Central Florida. We can see why! We saw some great Single A baseball, including several fantastic defensive plays, and the home team won! A great post-game fireworks display followed the game. We've decided that we may make the Daytona Cubs an annual part of our 4th of July celebration. For $7 admission and free parking next door to the ballpark, what a deal!

Love going to minor league baseball. The Jack is a great place to watch a game. First base side is covered, third base is open. You can choose depending on the sun / weather. Family fun and affordable. Thursday's are thirsty ones, with $1 beers...Bonus...

The 'Jack' is a classic historical ballpark that's had a pretty good update-decent bathrooms, fan areas, and concessions.
Good place to experience an inexpensive minor league game.
