  • I have loved this cozy stadium since it was built. There is not a bad seat in the house, and all amenities are within a short walk from your seat. Even if the boys aren't having a great season, it's still a treat to catch a game with my dad or son in this stadium.
  • Try to attend as many games as possible. Good baseball and a fun atmosphere for families.
  • Always enjoy a good baseball game! Go Crawdads!
  • A very nice Stadium. It is very clean and well maintained. The food offered was great! We were there with our grandkids so we had hot dogs, fries and my grandson had funnel cake from the friends he made in the row in front of us. Haha! The local Fans make this stadium one of the best we've been too.
  • My girls enjoyed every spot in this park!
