The Ed Smith stadium is conveniently minutes from the Sarastoa Airport!
The Pre-season venue offers a "little league" experience ( small stadium, up close to players, no over-crowding).
Food selections are limited however and are not of the outstanding variety or quality of the major league stadiums. Get dinner prior to the game!

However, the proximity to the airport and the great baseball ambiance make it worth the trip!

Ed Smith is a great place to enjoy a ball game. We go as a family right from Great Grandfather down to grand kids. The stadium offers everything expected from ballpark fare and has a decent souvenir shop. Our only holdup was that with most spring training games starting at 1pm, the sun was directly over head for most of the game. Great Grandfather found the direct sunlight a little warm as the game went on. But if this is the only downside to our experience (too much sun), then it was an excellent experience.

Loved the stadium. Hated that the Mets lost to the Orioles in Spring Training. Stadium is very nice and all seats seem good.
