Baggett Stadium is a baseball venue located on the campus of California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California, United States. It is home to the Cal Poly Mustangs baseball team, a member of the Division I Big West Conference. The stadium opened on January 21, 2001, with the Mustangs defeating #1 ranked Stanford 6-5 in 12 innings.[2] The stadium has a capacity of 1,734[3] and is part of a 47-acre (190,000 m2) facility which is also home to the Mustangs softball team.[2] The stadium can be expanded with additional bleachers to a capacity of 3,042 as was the case for the 2014 NCAA Baseball Regional hosted by Cal Poly.[4]

The record attendance for a 3-game series is 8,585 vs Cal State Fullerton May 6–8, 2005.[1]

The stadium is named for Robin Baggett, a former baseball player at Cal Poly.[5]

In 2012, college baseball writer Eric Sorenson ranked the field as the fifth best setting in Division I baseball.[6]

In 2013, the Mustangs ranked 51st among Division I baseball programs in attendance, averaging 1,290 per home game.[7]

In 2014, the Mustangs ranked 40th among Division I baseball programs in attendance, averaging 1,505 per home game.[8]

In 2014 Cal Poly hosted its first ever Division 1 Baseball Tournament Regional. The regional featured Cal Poly as the #1 seed along with Arizona State, Pepperdine and Sacramento State.[9] In a matter of minutes after going on sale, Cal Poly quickly sold out its first game of the regional against Sacramento State. Actual Attendance peaked Saturday night at 2,941 with Cal Poly's 2nd game despite all 3,042 tickets being sold out.[10]
