  • Whenever I see the Tides they win, that's good enough for me. Unfortunately the same can't be said for my Braves... But considering a ticket for a good seat only costs $13 this is a great value to watch a game. The food is around $7-$10 for a meal, desserts arround $4-5. Beer is a little too expensive, with prices around $9-10. But it's enjoyable.
  • Clean. Well-designed. Plenty of parking. Plenty of vending and restrooms. Very affordable for the "good" seats. A lot of fun, even for those who aren't extreme baseball fans. There are often fireworks on the weekends and promotional nights where fans are given posters, bobble-heads, and other promotional items.
  • Very nice minor league stadium! The prices are great and it's very well kept!
  • Great price to get in and have a fun time. Once in a little pricey for food/drink.
  • I have never been to a game where I didn't have a great view and a great ballpark hot dog. Prices are all fair or at least expected for a stadium event - that goes for food and the price of admission. In fact I would say its a cheap ticket to get in the door and there is not a bad seat in the house. If you have never been you need to go.
