Murray Stadium is a baseball venue in Providence, Rhode Island, United States. It is home to the Brown Bears baseball team of the NCAA Division I Ivy League. Opened in 1959, it has a capacity of 1,000 spectators. Features of the stadium include dugouts, bullpens, batting cages, and a press box.[1] On May 5, 2007, the stadium hosted Brown's first ever Ivy League Baseball Championship, a 1-0, 20-6 doubleheader win over Penn.[2] The game was played in front of over 1,500 spectators.[1]

The stadium was dedicated on April 21, 2007, to the Murray family, boosters of Brown's baseball program who funded renovations to the stadium. The 2007 renovations included a new infield and landscaping around the stadium.[3]
