  • 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. Tickets are cheap, parking is free, and food is considerably cheaper than a Major League game. The only major issue is that there are two ice cream machines for the entire stadium, so after the 3rd inning, you will easily be waiting 20 minutes if you want ice cream. On the minor side, sometimes the staff likes to just hang out on the stairs and not move so stairs are sometimes blocked...
  • Great fun for anyone. I've been with a few people and with large groups. I've been in the upper enclosed private boxes and down behind the dugout. I've sung with a couple of different groups our national anthem, and I caught a couple of T-shirts. I've enjoyed each entire experience from parking the car to Grucci's fireworks. Your $20 bill gets you your seat, pretzel & ice cream.
  • 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!
  • We were at Bethpage Ballpark for a Business Mixer & we could not have had a better time. I brought my son & he absolutely loved it. We were at Smokin Als Deck down the Left Field Line & it was Great, my son went home with three baseball souvenirs. Food, company, LI Ducks, waitresses were all outstanding. Thanks to Jim for organizing a great evening!
  • Great place for a nice ballgame from a local team on Long Island. They have bouncy houses and slides for the kids too. Clean ballpark, free parking.
