“Poor Excuse for MLB Spring Training Site”
Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

Went to see StL v NYM today. Traffic control into stadium parking - abysmal; almost bailed! $7 to park. Tickets - $16/per. Scampers, a plenty. Stadium out of the 80's - concrete and folding chairs w/o cup holders. Volunteers at food service counters who did not know/could no operate cash/credit card machines -- means long lines! Left after 7.5 innings to avoid traffic. Want to see a 1st class operation, come to Surprise, AZ!

“Enjoyable Day”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Enjoyable day at the park. Great weather, good food. Wish I could have bought the straw mets hat the staff had but they are not for sale to the public. Oh well!?

“Great place for Hardball !”

Very intimate. Great food and easy to get to. For Spring Training it is easy to get autographs, just get there early.

“Great Park!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Went to a Mets spring training game and wow, perfect day! The park is very clean, has plenty of parking which was only $7, and almost all of the food is under $6. Almost beats the regular season games, great venue to catch a Mets game, and their Advanced A affiliate the St. Lucie Mets plays there as well.
