  • Since its inaugural season in 2000, Long Island Ducks Baseball has been a premier event of the summer. Having gone to many games over the years, it is exciting, entertaining and an excellent source of baseball fun for all ages. The team gave the fans some excellent baseball, fun between innings and the roar of the crowd during an exciting play was invigorating. I am looking forward to another wonderful action packed summer at "The Pond"!
  • Baseball field is clean. Very exciting for the kids especially the Duck character. Recommend for children 3 and up. My 1 year old loved the popcorn out of the ducks hat.
  • Enjoyed a Ducks game. Great evening for the family. Inexpensive and comfortable. Parking is convenient
  • Got a suite. Great view, good fun. The ducks cane into out suite and took pictures with us!
  • Great! Ticket prices are cheap. Food prices are crazy! Water is $4.00, I could buy a whole case of water with that.
