DAVENPORT FIELD EXPANSION
Davenport Field will soon be transformed to create a game-day experience for Virginia Baseball fans that rivals the nation’s best. This transformation will also include upgrades to training facilities at Davenport to enhance student-athlete development. The renovations will build on the program’s success in its pursuit of Uncompromised Excellence and the history of Virginia Baseball, which began in 1889.
Virginia Baseball has risen to national prominence, appearing in 15 NCAA Tournaments and winning the NCAA Championship in 2015. There have been 119 players selected in the Major League Baseball Draft. During head coach Brian O’Connor’s tenure, attendance at Davenport Field has increased, prompting several expansions that have pushed the seating capacity to over 5,000 and provided better training and development opportunities for our student-athletes.
As the program continues to thrive, it’s important for the facility to meet the needs of student-athletes and fans alike. The latest renovations to Davenport Field will build on the already electric atmosphere that players and fans enjoy each spring.
