Marge Schott Stadium is a baseball stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is the home field of the University of Cincinnati Bearcats college baseball team. The stadium holds 3,085 people and opened for baseball in 2004. It is named after former Cincinnati Reds owner Marge Schott, who willed $2,000,000 to the UC athletic department at the time of her death.[1]

In 2012, college baseball writer Eric Sorenson ranked the stadium as the third most underrated venue in Division I baseball.[2]
