|George Mason Softball Complex|
Following a $2.3-million renovation in the offseason, the George Mason Softball Complex reopened in 2009 as one of the finest softball facilities in the region.
The field, which sits at the same location as the previous park, features a head-to-toe replacement of the playing surface. Included among the renovation is a new Patriot bermuda grass outfield, new warning track and infield dirt, new irrigation and drainage system and an extension of the outfield fence. The dimensions for the new park are 210 feet down the lines and 225 feet to straightaway center.
In each of the newly constructed sunken dugouts, players have access to private restroom facilities as well as new bullpens. The third base side features a double batting cage.
In the seating bowl itself, the stadium features 200 permanent metal seats behind home plate, with grass berm seating for an additional 500 spectators. While walking on the wide concourse, spectators can take advantage of the men's and women's restroom facilities and water fountain. The park features a brand-new public address and sound system as well as a climate-controlled press box.
Last season, the Patriots compiled a 12-17 record in their home park, including a series win over Colonial Athletic Association rival Delaware with a doubleheader sweep on April 25.
