    Baseball in Aruba?

    Is there a stadium/field? Does it have a website?

    Yes there is a baseball statium in Aruba but think is all dirt. Been coming to Aruba for over 20 years and have never been to it.
    A couple of the Aruban players have made it to the U.S. major baseball teams. One played for Baltimore a few years and had great promise.
    For us Aruba is R & R. Sitting on the beach under a hut and R & R is what we do mostly.
    Might want to Post about the type of food you like and someone can Post the best restaurants for that.
    Take a sunset cruise one night.
    If you like to party there is a great Party Bus that will take you around the island in the evening. Dinner is included.
    Some of the casinos have Penny Slots. Good entertainment that doesn't cost much.
    Bring baseball caps or hats for all. There is usually a great breeze in Aruba so you may not feel the heat but you will get burned if you don't watch out. I usually wear T-shirts all day.

    Griswold family check this video on YOU TUBE, RAYPATRICKDIDDER, when this guy hits a home run at the new baseball stadium in ST. Cruz. Locals like to make a lot of noise when there is game going on.

    btw, there are approximately 10 - 15 fields in Aruba. Most are dirt, as they are multi-purpose (soccer, etc.), however the unique thing about Winston Stadium is it is all artificial surface (even the dirt-like cutoffs, such as home plate and around the bases).
