Stanley G. McKie Field at Joseph P. Hayden Jr. Park is a baseball venue in Oxford, Ohio, USA. It is home to the Miami RedHawks baseball team of the NCAA Division I Mid-American Conference.[1] The field, with a capacity of 1,000 spectators,[2] opened on March 24, 2002, for a game against Purdue. The RedHawks lost 8-0 in the game, which was played in front of 1,178 spectators.[1]

In 2012, college baseball writer Eric Sorenson ranked the park the best small venue in Division I baseball.[3]

Features[edit]

The facility includes dugouts, indoor batting cages, bullpens, a press box, a picnic area, and a luxury suite and room. The press box is officially known as the Dave Young Press Box and the luxury room as the Smokey Alston Luxury Room. The electronic scoreboard in left center field features a radar gun (added in 2004) and a message board.[1]
