Opening in 1989, Ed Smith Stadium is located in Sarasota, Florida and has been the spring training home of the Baltimore Orioles since 2010. Prior to the Orioles arriving in Sarasota, the Cincinnati Reds called Ed Smith Stadium home from 1998-2009. After the 2010 season, the stadium was renovated and a thousand seats were added, increasing the capacity of Ed Smith Stadium to 8,500. Since the renovation, all sections except the left pavilion have stadium seats.
Seats in Shade
A roof sits overhead on rows 9 and up for every reserve section besides 201, 212-214, and 225. By the start of afternoon games the sun is behind the first base side grandstand and provide shade to rows 7 and up in sections 203-211, and rows 9 and up in sections 215-223. As the game and afternoon moves on, shade covers the entire reserve grandstand on the first base side, while the third base side shaded seats remain the same.
Most fans will park in the large grass field across from the ballpark on 12th street, but another option is a small paved/grass lot behind left field.
The Orioles' bullpen is located down the right field line while the visitor's bullpen is located down the left field line.
The Orioles dugout is on the first base side in front of sections 107-110. The visitors dugout can be found in front of sections 116-119 on the third base side.
Three suites with a capacity of 20 people each run along the first base side. Suite 66, 70, and 83 are all named and themed after each of the Orioles' world championship teams. A larger suite can be found next to the press box holding up to 40 people. The Third Base Lounge can be found, you guessed it, on the third base side of the field. The lounge has stadium seating and a full service bar inside the gathering area.
