BSU Baseball Field

Located at the corner of 19th Street and Bemidji Avenue, the BSU Baseball Field has become Bemidji's premier baseball facility.

With the addition of a 250-seat brick facing grandstand, irrigation system, chain link fences and lights the "Field of Dreams," as the Bemidji Youth Baseball originators called it, became reality in 2000.

The BSU field emulates Boston's Fenway Park with many of the same outfield dimensions along with its "Monster" chain link wall in left field measuring 24 by 80 feet to the foul pole. Down the left field line is 305 feet, straight away center is 390 feet and down the right field line is 325 feet.

In the Spring of 2007 the Bemidji State Baseball team fundraised and installed a new 70' batting cage along with a 18' hitting net to make a vital hitting area the field has lacked in the past. The BYB also bought new field grooming equipment and took over 100% of the field maintenance.

In the Fall of 2007, Bemidji Youth Baseball completed phase I of its proposed three- phase project, which when completed will stand as one of the premier baseball fields in a five-state region. With the addition of 55-foot in-ground dugouts, a 28-foot state-of-the-art Fair Play scoreboard, a Pro Bose sound system and city water, the BYB inched closer to its ultimate goal. With donated labor and countless volunteer hours this field upgrade was close to $135,000 in total.

During a normal year, BSU Baseball Field is the site of more than 100 games. The field is home to Bemidji High School and Bemidji State University programs in the spring. During the summer, teams from Babe Ruth, VFW, Legion, amateur baseball and 13-year-old prep leagues make BSU Baseball Field their home.

With the donation of land by Bemidji State and BYB's fundraising for additional improvements, BSU Baseball Field has become one of the top facilities in Northern Minnesota.

BYB is currently seeking field naming rights in its efforts to secure $1.5 million for another dramatic upgrade. These plans call for two viewing decks, a new concession stand, wrap-around bleachers which would expand seating capacity to over 1,000 fans, locker rooms adjoined to the dugouts, restrooms, storage areas, and a new agralime warning track.
