Historic Sanford Memorial Stadium

Take a Virtual Tour


This recently renovated 2000-seat historic stadium once hosted the likes of Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays, Tim Raines and David Eckstein. Built in 1951, it was once home to the New York Giants and the Boston Braves, certifying its importance in baseball history.

Extensive renovations were made to the stadium in 2001, including a major renovation to the grandstands, a new arc design roof, and newly renovated clubhouses for both teams. The stadium really has done a great job of maintaining its historical image to allow your team or tournament to get a taste of what it’s like to play in a stadium that Jackie Robinson once played in!

Sanford Stadium is home to the Sanford River Rats, the local home town team favorite of the Florida Collegiate Summer League, a wood bat summer baseball league that brings some of the top college baseball players to Central Florida every year.
