Joe Bruno Stadium Reviews
Attended a show where they had dog challenges, vets, and authors that have written about dogs. Fun day for myself and the kids. more »
Perfect place to bring the family, go out with friends, host an event. Clean and well light park with so many activities besides just baseball. There's not a bad seat in the house! more »
What a great stadium! Beer and food options are reasonably priced, as are the tickets, especially if you buy them in advance. They have a great Sunday summer reading program for kids, and all those games start at a kid-friendly 5pm. Parents of smaller kids, be prepared to spend some time (and extra $) with your kids in their bounce and game area adjacent left field.
The seats at the stadium are fantastic and the staff are very friendly. The consession stand prices are very good considering the cost of other venues. The parking lots have ample space
