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

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.
