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!

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.
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.
