Ed Smith Stadium
Ed Smith Stadium complex in Sarasota, FL, hosts Baltimore Orioles spring training games and their rookie-Florida Complex League team(s). With LECOM Park in Sarasota, it was to co-host the 2021 U-18 World Cup from September 10-19, 2021 – but the Coronavirus pandemic postponed that into at least 2022.
Opened in 1989, the main stadium was designed by HOK Sport (now Populous). It hosted spring training for the Chicago White Sox from 1989 through 1997 and the Cincinnati Reds from 1998 through 2009. It also hosted three Florida State League franchises: the Sarasota White Sox from 1989 through 1993, the Sarasota Red Sox from 1994 through 2004 and the Sarasota Reds from 2005 through 2009.
The complex includes one infield-only diamond, and three other full-size diamonds.
