|Stanford Cardinal (NCAA DI Pac-12)
The stadium was built in 1931 and has a seating capacity of 4,000. When the adjacent 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.
In 2012, college baseball writer Eric Sorenson ranked the facility as the fourth best setting in Division I baseball.
