James Madison University Baseball/Softball Complex
The new Veterans Memorial Stadium includes a stadium complex for the University’s baseball and softball programs. The baseball stadium seats 2750 spectators and includes a synthetic turf field. The softball stadium seats 625 spectators and includes a natural grass field.
Both complexes include restroom facilities, state-of-the art press boxes, sports lighting, irrigation, elevators, dugouts, batting cages and bull pen areas. The two stadiums share a central plaza with a building that includes concessions, souvenirs, a ticket office, training room and support offices.
The baseball infield and outfield surface is the Astroturf Game Day turf developed specifically for college and professional baseball. The field is designed with an under field drainage system to enable games to be played that otherwise would have been rained out.
The new Veterans Memorial Park was constructed to honor all Harrisonburg and Rockingham County veterans who were killed in action. The new stadium complex replaces a stadium built in the 1940′s and dedicated in 1949 to honor 139 area service personnel killed in action.
