Facilities and Directions
V. Earl Dickinson Stadium:
The University of Mary Washington baseball team competes at one of the finest facilities in all of NCAA baseball, V. Earl Dickinson Stadium. One of the crown jewels of the Battleground Athletic Complex, located adjacent to campus along Hanover Street, Dickinson Stadium has seating for more than 1,000 fans, houses a concession stand, restrooms for spectators, and a state of the art public adress system that entertains fans with music and information. The players enjoy spacious dugouts, one indoor and four outdoor batting cages, and the newest aerobic and strength training equipment available at the field each day.
With dimensions of 330 feet down each foul line, 370 feet to the power alleys, and 400 feet to straightaway center field, Dickinson Stadium offers "big league" playability which is important for evaluation of players by major league scouts. The host to the 1992 NCAA Division III South regional tournament, Dickinson Stadium was named in 1998 after Virginia state delegate V. Earl Dickinson on Community Appreciation Day. In addition, Dickinson Stadium has been host to CAC Championship tournament games every year since 1991, including the weekend championship portion of the event in 1993, 1994, 1997, 2003, and 2004.
