Nischwitz Stadium is a baseball venue located in Dayton, Ohio, USA. It is home to the Wright State Raiders baseball team of the NCAA's Division I Horizon League. The facility has chairback seating for 750 spectators.[1]

The stadium is named for Ron and Gregg Nischwitz. Ron coached the program for 30 years, and his son Gregg played one season for the Raiders. However, he died in a 1980 construction accident. The stadium, built in 1993, was dedicated in their honor on April 12, 2000, during a Wright State game against Indiana.[1]

In fall 2012, a FieldTurf surface was installed at the field.[2]
