Jim Houlihan Park at Jack Coffey Field, or simply Houlihan Park, is a baseball venue located on the Rose Hill campus of Fordham University in Bronx, New York, United States. It is the home field of the Fordham Rams baseball team of the NCAA Division I Atlantic 10 Conference. The field is part of a larger athletic facility called Jack Coffey Field.[1]

Renovation and renaming[edit]

The park is named in honor of Fordham alumnus Jim Houlihan.[1] Houlihan made a $1 million donation to name the newly renovated field, which had previously been referred to simply as Coffey Field.[2] The field was resurfaced with FieldTurf as a part of 2005 renovations. Along with modifications to the playing surface, new lights, practice facilities, dugouts, grandstands, and a press box were added.[3]

Events[edit]

The field has hosted the 2006, 2012, and 2016 Atlantic 10 Conference Baseball Tournaments, won by Saint Louis, Dayton, and Rhode Island respectively.[4][5]
