“Awesome Stadium”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

A great place to watch the Detroit Tigers spring train. Also, you can watch the Lakeland Flying Tigers in the summer. Stadium is very clean and the field looks top notch!

“A pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Went here to watch a game with my four year old and was pleasantly surprised. The stadium while renovated in 2003 is in excellent shape for being ten years old. The sight lines were great and going on a Wednesday evening you could take advantage of the all you can eat promotion for just the cost of the ticket. What a deal. Out of all of the minor league parks I've been to so far this is the best one.

“Family Fun”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Went to a Flying Tigers Game night. They make it fun for the whole family. They try and involve kids so they have a good time. If its a summer evening game, I suggest sitting on the visitors side, because the sun will kill you until it goes down.

“The way baseball should be enjoyed”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

JMS is a great example of collaboration between the City of Lakeland, the Detroit Tigers and County government. The stadium is big enough to get the feeling of being in a major league city especially when the crowd is cheering. It is also intimate enough for each spectator to get "up close and personal" with the players. During Spring Training" there is nothing better than playing "hookie", heading out to the stadium, buying a hot dog (which are great), a cold beer, and enjoy America's pastime. Ron Myers runs the Tigers operations in Lakeland and takes great pride in his facility and it shows. The Tigers have been in Lakeland for more than 75 years and they are not only a great organization with a talented ball club, but they are great corporate citizens in the community. Joker Marchant Stadium is a wonderful venue. Couldn't recommend it more if you are in the vacinity of Lakeland, Fl. And, the baseball season at JMS runs well beyond the Spring Training with the minor league Flying Tigers.

“Good Family Value”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

If you're looking for an inexpensive family event, and yo don't mind the heat, this is the place. Tickets are cheap, the team is good and the post game fireworks are absolutely excellent. Have a meal out first, and plan on maybe a snack and a beverage to save even more. They have lots of give aways, are great with the kids and it's old fashioned family fun. Four stars because I am not a fan of the extreme heat, but if you get a seat in the shade it's acceptable.
