Booth Baseball Field

Baseball field


Booth Baseball Field is being built at the Ellis Hollow Rd./Game Farm Rd. site, near the existing Cornell Soccer practice fields. The existing Hoy Field had to find a new home due to the new Bowers College of Computing and Information Science Building being developed in its current location.  The new project will replicate the current competition field and its support facilities in a way that provides Cornell athletes with the same high-quality experience they have enjoyed at Hoy Field for 100 years.
