The Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville, which opened in 2003, is one of the premier minor league ballparks in North America.
The ballpark was the first completed project of the Better Jacksonville Plan. Featuring an old-fashioned design, brick facade, and a grass seating berm, the Baseball Grounds reminds fans of the days of yesteryear and preserves all of the wonderful tradition baseball has to offer. The vivid sightlines capture the action up-close while providing fans with comfortable seating and easy access to concessions and restrooms.
The Baseball Grounds sits on a little more than 9 acres and includes a 112,000-square-foot field, 12 luxury skyboxes, four skydecks, a large scoreboard and videoboard, a playground, and the “knuckle” – a unique nine-foot high mound for seating at the left field corner.
In addition to six concession stands, six portable kiosk locations, three dressing rooms, a media room, weight room and kitchen, the ballpark also feature a place for players to practice indoors.
