The University’s plan for Residential College expansion requires relocation of several varsity athletic facilities. Whereas the proposed Lake Campus site for the 1895 Softball Field relocation will take several years to implement, a temporary home for Varsity Softball has been constructed on Strubing Field on the site of the current Club Baseball Field.
This is the temporary home for Softball’s Varsity Women’s Team until the new facilities are scheduled to be completed in Summer of 2021. These facilities provide the needs of the Women’s Varsity program for three to four complete softball seasons. The playing field will be completed for use.
The existing bleachers, scoreboard and PA system were relocated from 1895 Field. New canopy dugouts, batting cages, bullpens, backstop and netting, and fencing around the field were constructed. The project also includes a turf playing surface, “press box” canopy, and irrigation system. An ADA accessible path from Fitzrandolph Street and portable/temporary toilet facilities is provided.
