Terwilliger Brothers Field at Max Bishop Stadium is a baseball venue in Annapolis, Maryland, United States. It is home to the Navy Midshipmen baseball team of the NCAA Division I Patriot League. This field has a capacity of 1,500 spectators. The stadium is named for Max Bishop, Navy head baseball coach from 1937–61.[1] In his tenure, the team's record was 306–143.[2] The field is named for two Naval Academy alumni, Ron (class of 1963) and Bruce (class of 1965), both contributors to Navy athletics. The scoreboard at Navy–Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Navy's football venue, is also named for the brothers.[1][3]

The field features a full FieldTurf surface (with the exception of the pitcher's mound and home plate), which, at the time of construction, was only the third such full surface in college baseball. The venue also features an LED scoreboard, restrooms, concessions, a patio area, and brick archways.[1]
