The University of Utah Athletics Department is pleased to announce that the Ute softball program will begin playing at Utah Softball Stadium in 2013.
The field at 102 S. Wasatch Drive will be ready to host the Utes and their Pac-12 competition during the 2013 campaign, while the permanent building around the field is constructed.
When the stadium structure around the field is completed, the new facility will provide an excellent environment for student-athletes, coaches and fans. Night games will become a reality, as the stadium will be illuminated by six banks of permanent lights.
It will feature an indoor batting area for the Utes, as well as outdoor batting and pitching cages for both teams. Dugouts will be equipped with restrooms and an athletic training room will also be located on the premises.
The dimensions of the playing field will be 235' to center field and 225' down the right and left field line, with a grass berm behind the outfield fence.
The capacity at Utah Softball Stadium will be 900, including armchair seats covered by a canopy, as well as bleacher seating. Temporary bleacher seating in left field will enable Utah to bid to host NCAA Tournaments.
The site will also include a permanent building housing concessions and restrooms.
