Klein Field at Sunken Diamond is a college baseball stadium in Stanford, California, on the campus of Stanford University. It is the home field of the Stanford Cardinal of the Pacific-12 Conference.
The stadium was built in 1931 and has a
seating capacity of 4,000. When the adjacent [1 ] football stadium was originally built in 1921, dirt was excavated from the site of the future baseball stadium, which created a "sunken" field a decade later.
Originally just known simply as
Sunken Diamond, the field was renamed in 2008 to honor donor Bud Klein and his family. [2 ]
In 2013, the Cardinal ranked 39th among
Division I baseball programs in attendance, averaging 1,747 per home game. [3 ]
In 2012, college baseball writer Eric Sorenson ranked the facility as the fourth best setting in Division I baseball.
