Baseball Facilities

Miller Park, a unique, combined baseball-softball facility, is the home of BYU baseball and softball. Baseball plays on Larry H. Miller Field, while softball calls Gail Miller Field, a back-to-back mirror image of the pre-existing baseball field, home. It is the first combined facility of its kind.

Miller Park’s blend of engineering ingenuity and scenic beauty are a favorite of baseball aficionados—and not just Cougar fans. Larry H. Miller Field at Miller Park was featured in February of the 2002 Great Parks Calendar provided by Baseball America. It was also among the featured facilities in the October 2001 Athletics Administration magazine.

SEATING AND FACILITIES

Larry H. Miller Field seats 2,204 fans in two-tiered permanent seating for baseball, 675 of which are in the lower bowl and 500 of which are under the canopy. Gail Miller Field has 2,100 chair seats all in the lower bowl, making it the fourth-largest on-campus NCAA softball facility.

The shared press box houses radio and TV broadcasts and seating for print media and game-day operations. There are separate locker rooms for visitors and Cougar clubhouses for both softball and baseball. The complex includes concession stands, a memorabilia mezzanine, handicapped seating, an elevator, an umpire room, a hosting facility, an equipment room, an athletic training room, double-wide indoor batting cages and coaches' offices. Both fields are lighted.

The softball scoreboard is located in right field, while the baseball scoreboard, donated by Bill and Linda Perry, is located in left field. The spire-accented, tensile roof is constructed from a teflon fabric pulled taut by cables, similar to the design of the Denver International Airport.

DIMENSIONS

The baseball outfield fences are 400 feet in center, 385 feet in the power alleys and 345 feet down the lines. The softball field dimensions are 210 feet down the left-and right-field lines and 220 feet in center field.
