The Baltimore Orioles have a great spring training facility! Easy to get in and out of.

Lots of food and beverage options - burgers, hot dogs, pretzels, chicken fingers - even Chick-Fil-A! There is lots of outdoor seating - picnic benches with umbrellas and other benches shaded by trees.

The seating is great! We sat on the first baseline. There is a net that protect up to section 106 - then there’s no net after that section - so you might need to pay more attention the further down the baseline you go.

The players were signing balls for the kids - it was so nice to see the kids so excited and that players being so kind to them.

It is hot in the Florida sun if you’re not used to it - so bring sunscreen and a hat to protect yourself. If you want to sit in the shade - sit in the upper sections. They are completely shaded but you still have a great view! Not a bad seat in the house.

Parking is also super easy! We paid $20 and parked in the lot directly across the street from the stadium. It couldn’t have been any easier!

I will definitely go back!

While I don't go to ball games, I was there for the Sarasota Symphony in the ballpark. It is a really nice and clean place to go. Lots of food choices for those who go for ballpark food. I hear the Pirates games are a lot of fun. Again, it is a good way to visit Sarasota.

Saw the last game of Spring training and this is a nice, clean ball park to watch baseball, not to mention very good fireworks. Close to the field seating, parking nearby which you have to pay for if you can't find parking on the street. Food is typical baseball food, however, they do have a little restaurant inside that you can get salads, sandwiches, etc.which is good. There is also a fan gift store.

Its a nice, clean park with good parking, restrooms and amenities. Plenty for vegetarians, too. All the seats seem to be good.

Park was great. Nice relaxed atmosphere, clean, modern and easy parking. Concessions were reasonable, and lines weren't long.
