Baseball Field

Baseball Field

Finished in 2009, the Covenant Baseball Field is one of the most beautiful baseball facilities in the southeast. The ballpark is located on the south end of campus and just a few steps away from the softball field. The park features spacious dugouts, oversized bullpens, and roomy dimensions (LF/RF - 325’, CF - 400’). In the summer of 2010, permanent bleachers were added behind home plate.

The playing surface is one of the best kept in the region, thanks to the hard work by the entire Covenant baseball program. Opposing players, coaches, and umpires rave about the quality of the well-maintained infield dirt and grass.

The facility played host to the NCCAA Mid-East Regional tournament in 2010 and has also hosted numerous local high school games.

The Scots have a 114-69 record at the field in the nine seasons of the ballpark’s existence. Covenant went 17-3 at home in 2014 and 16-5 in 2016. The first Covenant player to hit a home run at the field was Taylor Oldham on March 7, 2009 against Union (Ky.) College.

In 2014, the indoor hitting facility (below) was completed inside the Highlands Fieldhouse. The facility has two hitting areas and is used by both baseball and softball programs.
