Stetson plays their home games here. The field was a joint effort between Stetson and the city. It's wonderful. Not a bad seat in the place. And the food is very reasonably priced and high quality. We had hot dogs, fat and juicy. Peanuts were still warm in the bag, and I got some popcorn later on. Home team is... More

Fun to watch baseball in the off season, but got rained out after two innings. Love the close atmosphere of this park.

This park is the home field for the Stetson University "Hatters" baseball team, and when game time comes around, there is no doubt to whom this stadium belongs. A sea of green and white floods the seats as fans cheer on their favorite hometown college team. Get ready to belt out a chorus to "Take Me Out To The Ball... More

Attended a Stetson baseball game here. Easy parking, not a bad seat in the whole place, and the food is good and not over priced.

Home field for the NCAA Div 1 Stetson University and DeLand High School baseball teams is picturesque and easily accessible from downtown DeLand. Hometown support of the 'Hatters' is immediately noticeable and even more evident during the 7th inning 'stretch' when the Bleacher Creatures lead the crowd in 'Take me out to the ballgame.' The concession stand offers a predictable... More

Even in the middle of the fall with no game in sight, it is clear the Deland is blessed with a great venue for baseball. Melching is the home of the Stetson Hatters and Deland Bulldogs as well as a variety of other teams involved in tournament play. The seats are comfortable, the stands built for good visibility of the... More

Little DeLand has a first class ball park with tons of other amenties around it. Check it out. One of the reasons DeLand was name the best little town of Central Florida.

My husbands I loved going and watching college ball and Melching Field is a great ballpark. We were a little disappointed this past season in the fact that they raised there ticket prices and eliminated the senior discount.

When we were visiting Deland we thought we had to go a game of baseball. The local University team, Stetson Hatters were playing and we came and watched and cheered and marvelled at the melt down of the pitchers on both teams as 5+ pitchers got their marching orders. A lot of fun.

We happened on this stadium while visiting Stetson University. The Florida Sun League was playing and the venue was perfect. Vendors were very friendly and the game was the perfect way to end the day. If you get a chance -- don't miss it!
