This is your family vacation, so you choose to stay where you’re most comfortable – no requirements. If you’re looking to stay directly on-site, we recommend the Courtyard & Residence Inn by Marriott, which features an unforgettable view overlooking the stadium at Cal, Sr.’s Yard.

We always enjoy watching our kids play baseball, but this was truly a memorable family trip; everything was perfect.

The attention to detail, putting the kids first, quality of the fields, friendly atmosphere, and on-site staff made for an overall memorable experience that our families will never forget.




Aberdeen is a wonderful experience. Everything is well managed, umpires are professional, fields are in great condition, medical staff is attentive, and the hotel is great. 





"Experience" is the right word. The facilities are the best we've ever seen, and the focus on the kids having a great time is paramount. What great memories!
