Now in its 15th season of existence, Hawkins Stadium features a classic ballpark atmosphere coupled with a modern design that includes more than 4,000 seats. We are currently under construction outside of the left field fence. The new baseball facility will include new batting cages, a state-of-the-art classroom, cardio room, expanded weight room, pro-locker room, recruiting area as well as coaches' and staff offices. Alongside the left field line sits the existing Vanderbilt Baseball Field House and an Indoor Pitching Center is located in the concourse below the football bleachers. The existing Field House will still house the equipment room and locker rooms for current players. Once the project is complete, this second floor of the building will be used primarily to entertain with a hospitality/dining area and a catering kitchen.
