In 2014, the Princeton softball team played its 30th season at Class of 1895 Field. It is just the second home of Princeton softball since it gained varsity status for the 1982 season.

The field took the place of Broadmead Field, which is located adjacent to Clarke Field, home of the Princeton baseball team. In 30 seasons at 1895 Field, the Princeton softball team has a 329-159-1 record (.673). The first game at the facility was a 14-0 win over Lehigh in 1985.

Bleacher seating is available for several hundred fans down either side past each dugout. The team seating areas are adorned with distinctive orange and black awnings, making Princeton’s colors an eye-catching part of the field.

The field is spacious by collegiate softball standards. The field’s measurements are 205’ down the lines and 208’ to straight-away centerfield. Along the outfield fence are signs commemorating Princeton’s 17 Ivy League titles, seven NCAA tournament appearances and two Women’s College World Series appearances. The scoreboard, which was new for the 2014 season, is just over the fence down the left-field line.

Two outdoor batting lanes and bullpens, one for each team, are beyond the foul fences on either baseline. The view from home plate beyond outfield fence in springtime is of verdant trees, and those standing on the path behind the outfield fence look back at Bloomberg Hall, a student-housing facility, and the Poe intramural fields. Roberts Stadium, home of the Princeton soccer teams, is beyond the third-base line, placing 1895 Field in the heart of both the academic and athletic areas on Princeton’s campus.
