Eastern Illinois Panthers baseball (OVC) (1982–present)

Coaches Stadium at Monier Field is a baseball venue in Charleston, Illinois, United States. It is home to the Eastern Illinois Panthers baseball team of the NCAA Division I Ohio Valley Conference.[1] It has a capacity of 500 spectators.[2] Eastern Illinois' baseball program has used the field since its 1982 move to Division I.[1][3] Originally known simply as Monier Field, the facility was renamed after 2002 renovations, which added chairback seating, a press box, a sprinkler system, brick dugouts, and concessions. Fourteen red brick pillars, one for each of Eastern Illinois' fourteen baseball coaches, surround the stadium.[1]
