The Vanderbilt athletics site describes its "brick and wrought-iron fence design." Its left field wall is 35 feet high, a comparable height to the Green Monster at Fenway Park. Memorial Gymnasium is behind the left field fence, and Vanderbilt Stadium's east bleachers are adjacent to the third base stands.
In 2007, Hawkins Field was selected as a regional host site for the 2007 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament. A new scoreboard was erected and new temporary bleachers were added in right field to bring the capacity to near 3,700 for the tournament (and also the 2008 season). In late 2008, further expansions increased the stadium's permanent seating capacity to 3,700. This includes 2,200 chairback seats and 1,500 bleacher seats. The dugouts were also renovated and a new trainer's room added. In 2012, artificial turf replaced the grass playing field.
