Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Have been to this filed many times. Very family friendly. The West seats have no back and the South seats do, however even with partial sun cover it can be blind late in day (sun in the eyes). I would however highly recommend it. One of the few fields left with a manual score board

We went to a baseball game and had a blast. The stadium is easy to get to, has great seats, and there's nothing like minor league baseball for good entertainment. Check it out.

With covered seating at a reasonable price , don't miss out on a great American game. Team players are accessible for autographs and it's like the pro's of 30 years ago. Fun,fun,fun! Great food and food/drink/seat packages + special nights with value packed offers. Parking is $2. Wednesday games offer a free ticket to a future game (to all patrons) if the Tortuga's lose. Look for $1 dogs & drinks on specific nights too. Groups get a discount and acknowledgement at the game over the speaker system. Up close and personal venue great for the whole family.

We were hooked at the first game we went to, when they were the Daytona Cubs. Now the Tortugas play here, and it is even more fun. Small town baseball means every seat is close to the field, the food is awesome because it is cooked like baseball food should be, and the between inning antics are fun. They also do special nights for kids, seniors and dogs. The mascot, Sheldon, can really get down, and entertains with a heartfelt energy that will amaze you. Go Tugas!
