|Former names||Sunken Diamond|
|Field size||Left Field: 335'|
Right Field: 335'
|Opened||1931, 89 years ago|
|Stanford Cardinal (NCAA DI Pac-12)|
The stadium was built 89 years ago in 1931 and has a seating capacity of 4,000. When the adjacent football stadium was originally built in 1921, dirt was excavated from the site of the future baseball stadium, which created a "sunken" field a decade later.
In 2012, college baseball writer Eric Sorenson ranked the facility as the fourth best setting in Division I baseball.
The playing field at Sunken Diamond is oriented in an unorthodox configuration, with the batter and catcher facing south. The recommended orientation of a baseball diamond is east-northeast.
