2. Buck O'Neil Baseball Complex
Located 10 miles from Ed Smith Stadium, the complex at Twin Lakes Park is the Orioles longtime minor league facility. The pastoral cloverleaf of practice fields provides a tranquil backdrop for the hard work of spring training. If you get there early in the morning before games, you'll be able to see members of the Orioles' expanded spring training roster and minor leaguers running through drills and working on the fundamentals of the game. Six larger-than-life photos of Orioles Hall of Famers, including former manager Earl Weaver, adorn the complex's main building. An oversized three-card set of Negro Leagues legend and Sarasota native Buck O'Neil, created by MICA graduate artist Gary Cieradkowski, decorates the observation deck at the center of the practice fields.
