The Red and Charline McCombs Field is the current home of the University of Texas Longhorn Women's Softball team.

Opening in 1998 at a cost of $4.5 million, the field seats approximately 1,250 and is named after university benefactor Red McCombs and his wife Charline. It features a clay infield and a grass outfield.

The field made local headlines on March 26, 2005, when, during a game between Texas and Kansas, a portion of the bench in the Texas dugout collapsed, injuring five Texas players, four of which suffered ankle sprains.
