Not a bad seat in the stadium! The Orioles Spring Training is a must for anyone visiting Sarasota in Feb/Mar. Good food options, great weather and plenty of beverage choices! You'll love it.

If you like spring training and have a favorite team, catch them at "Birdland" in Sarasota. Weather is usually great, fans are knowledgeable & it is fun seeing the guys up close and personal.

Our family has attended O's Spring Training at Ed Smith for the past 4 years. This stadium gives you an authentic mini Camden Yards experience. It is a great atmosphere and also very affordable.

We attend at least one spring training game each year to see the Baltimore Orioles. Every seat in the stadium is good. Plenty of standing room also if you feel like walking around.

Unless one can afford expensive seats and then don't mind sitting alone if friends don't want or can't afford those seats, most of the seats are impossible to reach. Even for those just needing a hand, hand rails are too few, too short. Not right for a tax payer supported facility.

Had a wonderful time at the game. The stadium has changed over the years it really looks really nice. Can't wait for spring training to get here and go to more games.

This is where the Baltimore Oriole's spring train. Stadium seats around 8,500 and was recently remodeled for the Orioles. It's not a Major League ballpark, but you are close to the action and can see from almost anywhere in the stadium. I am from Pittsburgh and not used to seeing people drink hard liquor. In Pittsburgh only in the Luxury... More

I have been here a couple of times to see spring training games with my Pop. Nice stadium. Good seats all around. I particularly like the left field seats. Very cool.
