The first official game in the newly renovated stadium was played on April 4, 2009. Spartan pitcher Nolan Moody threw a no-hitter against Northwestern University. It marked MSU's first no-hitter in 16 years.
The numbers of two former players have been retired by the Spartans and hang on the right field fence: No. 36 Robin Roberts and No. 30 Kirk Gibson, which will be added in 2012. Also retired is number 25, worn by coach John Kobs and number 1 worn by coach Danny Litwhiler.
