E.T. Straw Family Stadium is a baseball venue in Emmitsburg, Maryland, United States. It is home to the Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers baseball team of the NCAA Division I Northeast Conference.[1] The stadium is part of the larger PNC Sports Complex.[2]

In 2007, the stadium underwent $400,000 renovations, thanks to the donation of Mount St. Mary's alumnus E.T. Straw. The venue was dedicated to Straw as a result. The renovations added a new backstop, outfield fence, a warning track, bullpens, and foul poles. A new press box, sound system, and bleachers were also added.[1]
