“Baltimore Orioles”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Just went to the game Sunday and couldn't believe how the renovations have improved the stadium. It was a full house and the people working there were so helpful. I really loved it.

Love this stadium and love the Orioles! Stadium is wonderful, the seats are all great and the crab cakes are just like back in Maryland!

“Outdoor Concession is horrible”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

The outdoor concession stand had the most terrible service....each time we visited it. More concerned standing around talking than actually serving its patrons. Refused to make eye contact and acknowledge patrons waiting in the rain. Severely poor service.

“Another spring training gem”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Great ball field with a small town feel! Remodeled 2 years ago and really made a difference in the outfield area. Plenty of room to roam around as well as a lot of opportunity to meet and engage with the players.

“Fabulous especially for spring training!”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

I agree with the review that said that this place was like a mini Camden Yards. It really is. It is new, clean and really spectacular. We are huge O's fans and came to watch the O's play the Yankees. The parking was easy, the seating was great, lots of great views and I got autographs from 2 players and almost one from Buck (he prioritized the kids and then had to go--that's the way you should do it!).

The whole game was very similar to what you'd get if you were at Camden Yards. Even the between innings entertainment was the same.

We went to see the O's play the Blue Jays at their stadium in Dunedin and appreciated Ed Smith even more! The poor Blue Jays stadium is worse than some high school stadiums I've been to. Really old and no frills.

Also agree with the reviewer who said to bring hats and sunscreen. Of course these are available for $$$$$$ in the O's team store.

Only negative is that I think they should allow re-entry if you still have your ticket. But maybe there is some logistical/practical reason that they don't.
