  • Evening games are the best. I sang "God Bless America at the bottom of the 7th Saturday night which was also Star Wars night! Entertaining between innings are too funny. Great Fireworks ended the night of course with music from Star Wars.
  • Love this place for a minor league park it has excellent field, ample parking, close proximity to waterside and right on the river.
  • Traffic is awful!!!! Been sitting in traffic for about an hour and still not even close to being able to park. There is no one directing traffic!!!!! This definitely makes a person not want to come back. 😞
  • Decent prices. I had fun.
  • Great time with kids. Food and drinks very expensive
