Ushers don't have a clue. Concession prices are outrageous. Restrooms filthy. Parking is not free. This is single 'A' baseball. Should not cost a fortune to see the lowest tier of professional baseball. The Last Place Mets suck, but that's not the ballpark's fault. Only went because Tebow was playing.

I've been going to the Mets stadium since the 1990's. The atmosphere is always timeless. Bathrooms and concession could use an update, but they are quite adequate. I'm main complaint is with the parking lot. Only 1/3 is paved, and it is very susceptible to flooding. Earlier this month, on Tim Tebow's first game, my car was parked in the last paved row about 30 feet from a drain. During a torrential downpour my car flooded. The floorboards had 1/2 inch of water when we got in. The lot needs attention, but if you park on high ground you should have a great time.

Easy parking, not a bad seat in the house. Fun place for a baseball game, sometimes they have fireworks also!

The Field is easily accessed off I-95 in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Free parking was a surprise and the walk from parking into the stadium was an easy one. Thursday nights are $1 hot dogs, $1 popcorn, 8 oz. soda's & 8 oz. beer. I placed my ticket order online and asked for "best available seats". To my surprise, we were in row 2, behind home plate! Wow was that awesome. We could almost touch the players. My daughter caught a foul ball and Tim Tebow was gracious to sign it after the game. He was also available to the crowds, especially kids, for autographs before the game too. He's quite a personable and generous guy. Plus, he's a good ball player in left field catching fly balls easily. His batting was good with runners advanced to the next base too. It was so much fun and the game against the Yankees was a close match the first night with the Mets coming out on top. The second night, we were given t-shirts as we entered as a promotion for the Mets. Unfortunately, the Yanks won. Although most seats are general admission, there's no difference in the style of seats as all have backs, no bench seating. So, pay the few dollars for assigned seats or do general, as they are all good seats. It's easy to see the bull pen and dug out too. Kids loved that from what I saw. The stadium is very new looking, clean, has Mets pictures on the walls, electric scoreboard, grassy lawn, beer area, casual atmosphere, and ideal for families or businesses to treat their employees to a fun night. I'd love to go again, and probably will next season.

Always an enjoyable time watching the Mets. Spring training is awesome and the St. Lucie Mets entertain all through the summer!
