Located on basically the same site as the old baseball grounds, Cougar Field is the proud home to the University of Houston baseball team. A great baseball program at the University of Houston has a great ballpark to match. On Feb. 22, 1995, the Cougar Baseball team moved permanently into one of the top college baseball stadiums in the country. The Cougars' beautiful home is a scaled-down version of a major league park, and it has already attracted fans from across the state who want to see a game in a great baseball environment.

The seating capacity of the park, containing a fully lighted, grass playing surface, is 3,500. However the stadium can accommodate up to 5,000 fans with a pair of grass berm areas located along the outfield lines. A canopy roof covers most of the stadium seats, and there are 35 spaces for wheelchairs.

Seating and access for handicapped fans are convenient with two wide ramps located on each side of the park. Netting encompasses the reserved seating area, so fans can be close to the action, yet safe from foul balls.

The stadium houses the Cougars' clubhouse, which includes large, professional-style locker rooms and offices for coaches. There is also a training area for on-site sports therapy as well as rooms for equipment, storage and laundry. One of the more recent additions to the complex is the indoor hitting practice facility on the west end. The practice facility should prove to be among the best in the region.

Visiting teams and umpires can enjoy the trip to Houston as both are treated to separate quality locker room areas. The facility underwent a significant change during the 2007 season with the addition of a state-of-the-art scoreboard in right-center field. The scoreboard, which stands about 47 feet high and 60 feet wide, will hold a 13-by-18-foot video board and digital message board. The scoreboard, which cost approximately $450,000 and was built by Spectrum Corporation, was made possible by the generous donations of Cougar Baseball fans and former players.

Another round of renovations took place prior to the 2010 season. The netting behind home plate was replaced, along with the metal bars that previously held the net up. In addition, the dugouts were painted as was the roof above the general admission seating sections. As part of the "Bring Back The Red" chairback campaign, all of the red chairs in the stadium were also replaced.

Located on the upper deck behind home plate is one of the best college press boxes in the country. The press box features booths for radio and television, a 28-seat working press area for writers and ample room to operate the public address and scoreboard. Accommodating the media is an important criteria for Houston to host future NCAA Regional events.

Once the good word about Houston's stadium got around, it didn't take long for the state's high school district and regional tournaments to select Cougar Field as its playoff site. Night after night in the spring, fans for different high school teams from around the region came on campus for playoff games. Of all the different teams from the state tournament, the one winner has been the University for its diamond of a stadium.

Even Major League Baseball's San Diego Padres were impressed with the University's facility when professionals played the Cougars in an exhibition game at Cougar Field in April 1996. As a result, Tony Gwynn Field was built at San Diego State.
