Beaver Field at Jim and Bettie Smith Stadium is a baseball stadium in Boone, North Carolina, that is home to the Appalachian State baseball program. Prior to using Beaver Field the Mountaineers used Lackey Field. The stadium was dedicated on April 10, 2007 with the Mountaineers claiming a 6–1 victory over Gardner-Webb.[2] Appalachian selected FieldTurf as the playing surface for the new stadium, joining a select group of NCAA Division I and MLB programs to use the mix of silica sand and cryogenic rubber to emulate natural grass.[3]
