SNHU Baseball Field


The new press box facility and seating area behind home plate at Penmen Field.


Located on North River Road across from Webster Hall, the Southern New Hampshire University baseball field has undergone extensive renovations in recent years, the biggest being the addition of a new facility behind home plate prior to the 2016 season. The building houses permanent bathrooms and storage on the ground level, a press box and media suite on the second floor and a filming deck with a spectacular view of the field on the top level. In front of all that, the temporary seating behind home plate was removed and replaced with permanent seating for approximately 200 fans, including a total of approximately 75 chair-back seats directly behind home plate. Fully ADA-compliant, the front row of the seating bowl sits above the top of the backstop wall, ensuring a great view of the action. A new state-of-the-art Daktronics scoreboard was also installed in right field, while updated signage and banners, as well as a standings/lineup board, were added to the facility.

The field is kept in pristine condition by an underground irrigation system and dedicated field maintenance crew. A state-of-the-art Musco lighting system was installed prior to the 2012 season, allowing night games and the ability to host postseason competition. In 2010, the Penmen and Northeast-10 Conference logos were added in the backstop and along the outfield fence, while 2009 saw the Penmen logo added in centerfield. Baseball accommodations include a turtle-shell, a batting tunnel, large team dugouts, and home and visiting bullpens.
