The historic ballpark opened on June 4, 1914 as the Daytona City Island Ballpark. It consisted of a baseball field and set of wooden bleachers. In the 1920's, a road circling the ballpark was built to accommodate the growing number of spectators who were traveling to the ballpark by automobile. A grandstand with a press box was built behind home plate to replace the original wooden bleachers along with two additional covered sections of grandstands along the first base line. A bleacher section along the third base line was added shortly after the first renovation in the 1950's. The present day grandstand and press box were built in 1962. A home team clubhouse was constructed down the left field line in 1972 to accommodate the Montreal Expos. In 1973 left field bleachers, with a capacity of 2,500 seats, were installed. The park was renamed Jackie Robinson Ballpark in 1989 as the stadium served as host to the first racially integrated game in baseball history.

The Daytona Cubs played here for 22 years.

The 2015 season will be the first season with the Cincinnati Reds affiliation.

A team store is located in the ballpark during the season, in the off season, a satellite team store in located in the Daytona Tortugas front office at 110 E. Orange Ave. Directly south of the ballpark.

Great time for the entire family. $1.00 hot dogs, popcorn & soda. Entertainment every time the teams change sides. Pitching contest, diaper derby, base running, puzzle assemble, karaoke! If the visiting team wins everyone gets free general admission tickets for another game. Reasonable prices for tickets also. A wonderful way to spend an evening.

My husband son in law and grandson went to see a ball game! There were lots of people and my grandson had a fantastic time even though it was very very hot that day. They stayed the whole game and even got to sit up close so my three year old grandson could see the players up close. A real... More

Went there for the Easter Seals walk event. Watched a game after and it was fun. Central location and easy in and out. Great Thai restaurant just moments away is a bonus too.

This is a local attraction for outside evening fun, but it is an older ballpark that is not in the best of shape. That being said, if you live in the area, it is the place to be seen on any Thursday night game. It has a true small town feel and you will know more than a handful of... More

I have been to over 50 different minor league stadiums and I would have to say this was my least favorite. My wife and I sat in row 1, but unfortunately there were seats and a walkway in front of us. Because there are only two ways to get to the seats behind home plate we had numerous people walking... More

It was Jackie Robinson day on April 15th, 2017 and even though we were there before the hour before game time opening of the gates, the 1,000 free t shirts were gone.

This is a historic ballpark in Daytona Beach, but is in bigtime need of modernization! Too many bench-style seats with no backs make it difficult to sit and watch a game. And when it rains, there's very limited space to seek shelter. Be prepared!

Watching the Tortuga's play here is a wonderful experience. There isn't a bad seat in the house, the ticket prices are very reasonable and you can luck out with Free Pizza (Tuesdays)!
