In 2022 the Orioles almost pulled a “2008 Rays”, going from last to first. Except they didn’t quite finish first as they narrowly missed the playoffs. With a roster heading into the regular season stacked with highly-graded young talent, the Orioles threaten to make the ridiculously tough AL East that much more challenging. See for yourself how the Orioles will stack up this year during Spring Training at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota!

Keep reading for things to do in and around Ed Smith Stadium.

Things to Do and See at Ed Smith Stadium

Built in 1989, Ed Smith Stadium has hosted Baltimore Orioles Spring Training since 2010. Fans visiting south for the spring from Maryland are sure to feel even more at home given that, since 2010, the seats at Ed Smith Stadium are refurbished from Oriole Park at Camden Yards!

Out in Leftfield

Located just beyond the leftfield fence, the “Left Field Pavilion” is the perfect place for casual drinking and dining while you take in Orioles Spring Training action. Single-game tickets in this section start as low as $19.

How Suite It Is

Located on the second level on the first base side, Ed Smith Stadium’s three World Series Suites offer outstanding views of the action within a climate-controlled setting (don’t underestimate the value of AC!). Each suite, 66, 70, and 83, acknowledges one of the Orioles’ World Series championship teams and offers up to 30 guests a flexible menu. 

Hail a Hero

Throughout Spring Training at Ed Smith Stadium, the Os will honor members of the community who have helped, either through their work or as a volunteer, improve the lives of others. Honorees receive four game tickets, parking, an award medal, and the opportunity to be featured on the video board during a game.

You can nominate someone here.

Get in Touch with Sea Life

Sarasota’s Mote Aquarium allows visitors to get up close and personal with the creatures of the sea, with “touch pools” and interactive exhibits. Fun for the whole family!

Get Back to Nature

Marie Selby Botanical Gardens offers 45 acres of bayfront nature sanctuaries designed to connect people with the plants of the world. There are two locations: the 15-acre Downtown Sarasota campus and the 30-acre Historic Spanish Point campus in the Osprey area of Sarasota County.

The Downtown Sarasota Campus is the only botanical garden in the world dedicated to the display and study of certain tropical plants.
