Hagerstown Suns Municipal Stadium reviews
Our stadium is the second oldest minor league stadium in the country. Willie Mays played his first game here! The stadium is a great option for an affordable fun night with friends and family. more »
Very dirty place parking has lots garbage flying around we see owner walking around no landscaping done discussing feel like never book that place check in around 10 desk clark guy send dirty room... more »
One of the best farm team's ball park (I have been at 9 parks so far). Great place to spend the night with your family. Very friendly staff. Affordable prices (~$10-12 per ticket). Kids friendly. Ticket to moon bounce costs $5 for all day. Sometimes I spent more time in the kids area instead of watching the game. Great food. Freshly cooked/grilled hamburger costs $6.
If you go on a Sunday, you'll have lots of space. I go alone for quiet time, enjoying the small town ambience of a minor league game. To give a better idea: There was a family one section over. Their kids got to participate in on field games in between innings, and the 3rd base coach made sure all the kids got a ball. Many complain about the ballpark being old, and needing updated. Let me assure you, the bleachers at the Sun's stadium are equal to the bleachers at the Key's stadium.
