Hoglund Ballpark is a baseball stadium in Lawrence, Kansas. It is the home field of the Kansas Jayhawks college baseball team. The stadium holds 2,500 people and opened for baseball in 1958. It is named after former Jayhawk baseball shortstop Forrest Hoglund.[1]

Following the 2010 season, an artificial turf surface was installed at the facility. The installation, which was overseen by AstroTurf USA, cost $1.2 million, all of which was funded by donations to the Jayhawk baseball program.[2]
