Selby Field, usually referred to simply as Selby, is the football, field hockey, track & field and men's lacrosse field at Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio, where the Battling Bishops play.

Selby has a seating capacity of 9,100, with all seats falling between the 15-yard lines of the field. Its press box was lauded as the largest in Ohio outside of Ohio Stadium.

Selby Field is located on South Henry Street, just east of the academic and administrative buildings of Ohio Wesleyan.

On March 18, 1985, Selby Field was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Beginning in 2013, the Ohio Machine of Major League Lacrosse began playing home games at Selby Field.
