CAP'N DICK SMITH FIELD, HOME OF THE GENERALS

The Washington and Lee baseball team plays all its home games at the New Cap'n Dick Smith Field. Located just a few hundred yards from the old Cap'n Dick Smith Field, the stadium resides in a picturesque setting of pine trees behind the Student Pavilion and the Duchossois Tennis Center, just off of Route 60 West.

Constructed in the spring of 1999 at a cost of 1.8 million dollars, the stadium includes permanent seating for 350 spectators and a 1,056 square-foot building which houses a press box, concession area, and restrooms. The facility also features sunken dugouts with bathrooms, water fountains, and storage areas, two enclosed bullpens, a 2,340 square-foot building with two indoor hitting cages, and a state-of-the-art public address/sound system.

The outfield fence measures eight-feet high, except in right field where it towers at 16 feet and is 400-feet to straight away center, 320 to right, 330 to left, 365 to right center, and 370 to left center. Also, beyond the left-center field fence is a 36-foot long scoreboard.
