William & Mary Tribe (1999–present)

Plumeri Park is the College of William & Mary Tribe baseball team's home stadium located in Williamsburg, Virginia.[1] It has been in use since 1999. Joseph J. Plumeri II, a William & Mary alumnus (Class of 1966) and former Tribe baseball player who is Chairman & CEO of Willis Group Holdings, funded most of the construction costs, thus the park is named after him.[1] Plumeri Park is a baseball-only facility and it includes a state of the art scoreboard, a 10-foot artificial turf halo behind the home plate area, locker rooms, a press box, concession space, a grandstand, and covered and outdoor batting cages.[1] It seats up to 1,000 people and has stadium lights, enabling the Tribe to host night games. The park's inaugural game was on March 20, 1999.[1] The Tribe hosted the Penn State Nittany Lions and won 16-10.
