The stadium was not open for a self guided tour. This was disappointing and I can sort of understand why but I did travel to see it. The gift shop was open and stunned on how much $ they wanted for ALL items. Beautiful facility and grounds seen from the outside!

We weren't there for a ball game but went for the Orchestra in the Outfield. It is a great venue for a ball game and a fun venue for the Orchestra in the Outfield. We had a great time. It is very nice place to go.

Love all the renovations done over the last few years... it's a great place to watch a game.. sit on the first base side of the stadium, up enough rows to get in the afternoon shade. Don't worry almost EVERY seat is a good seat at this park.

We were at an event sponsored by the Orioles. Beautiful evening under the stars and lights of the stadium. There was a Bar-b-que in right field with drinks and side dishes set up. Built in Tables all around and the view of the field was great. I've attend spring training games there and it is one of my favorite stadiums.... More

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.
