Quinnipiac Baseball Field is a baseball venue in Hamden, Connecticut, United States. It is home to the Quinnipiac Bobcats baseball team of the NCAA Division I Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. The venue features portable bleacher seating and a press booth. It also has an embankment in right center field that lies in play.[1][2]

A group of students, including future head coach Dan Gooley, built the park in the summer of 1966. Previously, the program played at Hamden's Legion Field.[3]

The mountains that make up Sleeping Giant State Park are visible beyond the outfield fence.[1]
