    while baseball fans with knowledge of the sport attend nearly all the games, there are those who simply go to be autograph seekers. The tickets are a very good deal, not a bad seat in the stadium but ...  more »

    My first impression wasn't all that great. We got there early and had to wait outside until an hour before the game. First thing we did was to order three waters we were not cold. It was hard to repla...  more »

    DISCLAIMER: This is a review of the ballpark itself, not the Ducks, not the Ducks management or players, but strictly the ballpark and its management. Overall it's a nice place.

On the minor side, sometimes the staff likes to just hang out on the stairs and not move so stairs are sometimes blocked...

    Great place for family fun. Great seats for $13! I'm talking field level. Good food at OK prices. Lots to do for the kids, give-aways all night. Quack Jack is fun for the kids. Very interactive. Photos show from row 3 only $13!

    Family friendly. Good baseball. Every seat is a good one. The sausage and peppers is excellent.

    Free parking, good and beverages reasonably priced. Baseball stadium geared for kids with bouncy house, inflatable slide and fun activities between innings.

    Good prices, good food and great times for adults and kids. This place has activities for the kids throughout the game, great concession stands, like Smokin Al's BBQ, decent prices, clean bathrooms, and best if all, fireworks after the game.
