Official Review by Chris Green, Stadium Journey Regional Correspondent
(Author's note: The following review is in no way related to the quality or talent of the players on the field, nor their effort or love of the game.)
Broward College is not a large school. In addition, the field on which the team plays baseball is really more appropriate for high school baseball than collegiate athletics. In fact, it looks so much like a high school field that one may drive past it if they weren’t going there specifically for a game with GPS directions. And the experience is pretty much the same.
The FANFARE scale is our metric device for rating each stadium experience. It covers the following:
Each area is rated from 0 to 5 stars with 5 being the best. The overall composite score is the "FANFARE Score".
There is quite literally nothing to eat or drink at Broward College baseball games. The Seahawks have no concession stand. Not even a grill set up, a tailgating fan, or even a vending machine to pick from. If you get hungry or thirsty, you will have to either bring something for yourself to eat or suffer through the remainder of the game.
The atmosphere is not too bad, as the few fans that show up to the games at Broward College are quite loud. Many of them are family and friends of the players in the game, and therefore wear their support on their sleeves. They are knowledgeable and know what is going on in the game, unlike some colleges where the students attend because they get free entry, but know little about what is actually happening.
The immediate area around Broward College Baseball Field is pretty much like other colleges. The field sits on the property of several colleges, including an FAU satellite campus and Nova Southeastern University. Outside of there, you will find suburban neighborhoods and plenty of restaurants and shopping. Lodging can be found nearby at various hotels. The Seminole Hard Rock Resort is not far from the area either.
The fans who show up are few and far between. Those who do are loyal and loud. But the fact of the matter is, the stands remain empty for most of the games, which is a shame for any sport.
Getting to Broward College baseball isn't hard to do. The field is right off of I-595. But the issue here is the traffic. This is one of the most intensely congested highways in South Florida, as it runs east and west between I-75 (which connects the western Florida coast with the greater Miami area) and Fort Lauderdale. Plus, you have the congestion from the neighborhoods around, as well as the other colleges nearby. Finding the field isn't difficult. Getting there in a timely manner may be a different story.
The best thing about Broward College baseball games is that they are free. When you get to the field, you simply need to find an open gate. Therefore, with zero investment in tickets, you get to see a college baseball game. The downside? There isn't much of an exciting experience to be had at the game.
Broward College baseball games are held right under the flight path for Fort Lauderdale Airport (FLL), making for an awesome fly-over by planes every 30 seconds. This can be pretty neat if you are into planes and aviation.
Getting to see a Broward College baseball game isn't exactly something that draws the fans by the hundreds. If it did, they wouldn't have the bench space on the few metal bleachers that are at the field. On the plus side, the trees provide shade from the South Florida sun. Other than that, you aren't missing much here.
