Barcroft Park is a baseball venue located on in Arlington, Virginia, US. The field is home to the George Washington Colonials baseball team of the NCAA Division I Atlantic 10 Conference. The field holds a capacity of 1,000 spectators.[1] The field is officially designated Barcroft Park Field #6 and includes a new turf field by FieldTurf, bullpens, enclosed dugouts, bleachers, lights, scoreboard, and pressbox.[2]

Renovations[edit]

In the offseason between 2011 and 2012, Barcroft Park underwent renovations. Using funds from both George Washington University and the Arlington County Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources Department, the field will receive a new artificial turf surface, a press box, stadium seating, concessions, dugouts, and bullpens. In December 2011, the demolition of the previous structures was completed.[3] At the beginning of the 2012 season, the renovations had not been completed, and George Washington was forced to relocate some home games.[4][5] George Washington played its first game at the renovated park on March 23, 2012, in which the Colonials lost to La Salle 7–4.[6][7]
