The Riverside Sports Complex, in Riverside, California, is the home field of the University of California, Riverside baseball team. It is primarily used for baseball and was the home of Riverside Pilots before they moved to Lancaster, California to become the Lancaster JetHawks in 1996. The stadium seats 2,500 and features a home team locker room built personally by Troy Percival, a UC Riverside alumnus.[1] The field was also the site of the NCAA Division II College World Series from 1980 to 1984. A statue of the UCR Bear in concrete just inside the entrance to the facility, was erected in 2007. The stadium also has a pair of hitting cages located underneath the grandstands.[2]
