Campus Invited to Baseball Game on Newly Renovated Field

To celebrate the completion of the North Field renovation, Caltech and the Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation invite the campus community to the April 14 baseball game against Whittier College, which will begin with a ceremonial first pitch on the new field. 

The pitch, at 3 p.m., will precede the Orange Out game, which will be played on the new state-of-the-art artificial turf, which is designed to provide a consistent playing surface and reduce campus water use. The high-quality turf also includes a subsurface cork layer that keeps the field playable on hot days.

The new field, the product of an eight-month renovation project, features a regulation college soccer field and baseball diamond, upon which the intercollegiate baseball, men's soccer and new women's soccer programs can compete, in addition to club and intramural sports.
