Joe Nathan Field is a baseball field on the campus of Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, New York, USA. It is also referred to as the Stony Brook Baseball Field. The field is home to the Stony Brook Seawolves baseball team of the NCAA Division I America East Conference. It is located at the northern end of the school's athletics complex.[1] The facility was known as Seawolves Field through the 2002 season, when its name was changed to University Field.[2][3] In 2011, the stadium was rededicated for then-Minnesota Twins pitcher and Stony Brook alumnus Joe Nathan after Nathan's $500,000 gift made extensive renovations possible. As part of the renovations, a FieldTurf surface was installed.[4]

The 2011 America East Conference Baseball Tournament, won by Maine, was played at Joe Nathan Field.[5] The 2012 America East Conference Baseball Tournament was also hosted by Stony Brook, who won the tournament.[6][7][8]
