  • We were here a few weeks back and I can say that this stadium, other facilities and tournament are all top notch and very well run.  more »
  • I've been to the ball park at hand full of times. It has been a great experience all the times I have been. With both family and friends. It's just a great fun night out.  more »

  • As far as minor league games are concerned Ripken Stadium does it right from top to bottom. Our kids love the experience and it is not as crowded or expensive as a major league game. The players are always kind and accessible and you can feel that it is geared towards family which is always nice with small kids. We will be going here for the foreseeable future. The only issue I had was that they ran out of peanuts.
  • My family are season ticket holders. For years my son has been able to sit behind the dugout and catch balls tossed up by the players as they came in from the field. Tonight my son and his friend were told they had to leave because the man in charge of that area was not going to be responsible if they got hit by a ball. However all night on the 3rd base dugout side, kids were all over the back of the dugout. I know this because I have pictures for proof. I went to fan asst. a total of 6 times. I was told someone by the name of Brad was coming to talk to me. I heard them call him on the radio and him answer, so I know he was there. The game started at 5:35 tonight and. I went to fan assistance at 6:17, it is now 9:19 pm and still no Brad, who I am told is the Asst. General manager, who never showed up. They don't treat season ticket holders very well. In fact I think waiting over 3 hrs to talk to someone, is outrageous at any situation. I have decided that I will not be a season ticket holder next year, nobody wants to be treated like that. They could have sent anybody over to talk to me, anybody but they chose not to and that wander why less and less people are going to the games. Brad, didn't even know what I wanted, guess it doesn't matter. If you are reading this. SAVE YOUR MONEY, DON'T WAIST IT HERE. Very disappointed.
  • This is a great small stadium. I love the things they have for the kids. When my daughter was in girlscouts they actually have a overnight camp out where we set up our tents on the field, play a movie on the big screen, and lots of activities before bed time. The only thing is that it can be over priced the tickets and the food.
  • Do you read the menu for the games? Tonight beside salads, we were to have fruit salad - I'm still looking for it. Assorted cakes for after dinner. The chicken was very good as were the potatoes. The cakes must be hanging out with the fruit salad. We pay a good price for the dinner, and you print out what we were having. True? What happened? The game was perfect as was the tribute to the Officers. Thank you for that.
  • Great family destination if you like baseball. Lots of stuff for kids, easy parking (free) and every seat is a good one
