Nothing beats the home crowd atmosphere of Joker Marchant stadium
The Lakeland Flying Tigers were formed way back in 1960, making them one of the older teams in the league. As they’re classified as an Advanced-A team, you know you can expect high-quality baseball when you go to watch one of their matches. Although any game featuring the Tigers is bound to be exciting, you can’t beat the atmosphere of one of their home games, which are played at Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland. When it opened in the 1960s, it had a capacity of just 4,900, but thanks to modern renovations in 2017 it now has seating for around 8,500 cheering fans, providing the perfect setting to watch a game in the summer sun of Florida. With dozens of games each year you shouldn’t find it hard to get tickets and see one of their matches.
