Earl Lorden Field is a baseball venue located on the campus of the University of Massachusetts Amherst in Amherst, Massachusetts, USA. The field is home to the UMass Minutemen baseball team of the NCAA Division I Atlantic 10 Conference. The field is named after former UMass baseball coach Earl Lorden and was dedicated in his name on April 24, 1971.[1]

Renovations[edit]

An electronic scoreboard was constructed beyond the left field fence before the 2001 season.[1]

In fall 2012, a new outfield wind screen was installed, an artificial turf halo was added around home plate, and the facility's dugouts were renovated.[2][3]
