  • We visited during camp day. It was well organized entertainment. The River Dogs won over the Suns 10 to 2. Everyone had a wonderful time even though we were all melting. 
  • Great place to take the kids or a date to just have something to do outside! The stadium is getting old and run down but the field is nice and the players on the team have always been top notch for family friendly environment and entertainment! Oh and did I mention the fire works, some night they have fireworks and they are great! VIP seats by first base line are the best, my kids always leave with a game ball!
  • Dad love this place, I enjoy it too. It is a great place to spend with him smiling and not controlling every thing. I can not wait to get back in the stadium. Its 1 of my favorite times with him. "Batter, Batter, Batter, Swing"..LoL
  • We have came to several Hagerstown Suns games. We love them all. Tickets are cheap, games are fun to watch, park is nice and clean, burgers are made fresh on the grill and the food prices are great. The last game that we went to was the Hagerstown Suns vs. the Delmarva Shorebirds and it was a great game. Tied in the bottom of the twelfth the suns scored and won. We have great memories of coming here and will go back many more times.
  • A very quaint stadium
  • A great palace to catch an affordable ball game
