Bethpage Ballpark is a 6,002-seat baseball park in Central Islip, New York that serves as the home of the Long Island Ducks, an independent minor league baseball team that is a member of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball. Its first regular season game took place on May 14, 2000, when the Ducks played host to the Aberdeen Arsenal. The game was the first in the history of both franchises, as they both entered the Atlantic League at the same time. Bethpage Ballpark hosted the 2002 and 2010 Atlantic League All-Star Games.
On July 17, 2001, Citigroup acquired European American Bank (EAB) for $1.6 billion and $350 million in preferred stock. The acquisition resulted in a name change from EAB Park to Citibank Park. However, Citigroup ended its corporate sponsorship in the spring of 2010 and the ballpark was given the temporary name "Suffolk County Sports Park" for the 2010 season.
On December 15, 2010, Suffolk County officials agreed to a $2.1 million deal with Bethpage Federal Credit Union to name the stadium "Bethpage Ballpark" until the 2020 season.
Concessions at Bethpage Ballpark include mainly traditional ballpark fare, located at the Hebrew National Picnic Area. Beer connoisseurs can visit the Smokin' Als Party Deck for their choice beverage.
In addition to Bethpage Ballpark's 6,002 chairback seats in the general seating area, it includes the Luxury Suites and the club level suites available for business or pleasure.

  • Lucky enough to get seats in Sec. 202, right behind home plate. Excellent seats, great sight lines. Had VIP passes to the Duck Club. The people there were nice but the offering was hardly worth the price. I looked at the Ducks website a day or two before the game and viewed the Club menu. It certainly looked like a nice place. However, today the only option was a buffet with hamburgers, hotdogs and brisket. Other than that, It was a great time. And there were fireworks!
  • Really unrated and underestimated. The view is excellent almost anywhere. I walked the length of the bleachers from one side to the other with kids in tow. Still saw plenty while buying the souvenirs, ice cream and food. While the souvenirs are cheap the food is not. Great experience none the less would like to make it a yearly tradition.
