Ed Smith Stadium
Ed Smith Stadium Sarasota TicketsEd Smith Stadium was built in 1989 to replace the city's old facility Payne Park. As downtown Sarasota, Florida, became increasingly congested, it became necessary to move baseball's spring training operations away from the center of town. Construction on the new facility at 2700 12th Street in Sarasota was completed in time for the 1989 spring schedule. The Chicago White Sox played there for eight years followed by the Cincinnati Reds for a decade. In 2010, the Baltimore Orioles signed a 30-year agreement with the City of Sarasota. With a new tenant came the funds for a much-needed renovation. The rejuvenated Ed Smith Stadium has refurbished seats from the Camden Yard, the Orioles' original stadium. There are now three air-conditioned luxury suites plus a fabric canopy more than doubling shaded seating. Ed Smith hosts all the Orioles' home spring games and concerts and other special events. You can purchase the best tickets for Ed Smith Stadium events at StubHub.
