Sports History Tours: Baseball, Golf & Water Sports
$30 per person TOUR ONLY

Take me out to the Ballgame!

Hop aboard our air-conditioned trolley to hear from local sports fan Jon MacDonald about the history of baseball, golf, & water sports in Sarasota. Meander through historic neighborhoods, visiting important places like Payne Park, Bobby Jones Golf Course and the Ed Smith Baseball Stadium.

During spring training (March 2019), we’re also offering a Tour + Spring Training Transport Ticket for $35: you can park at Ed Smith stadium, get picked up by our trolley for the tour before the game, and get dropped back at the stadium at the end of the tour to enjoy your ballgame.
