Southern Miss Softball Complex

Southern Miss Softball Comples Southern Miss Softball Comples Southern Miss Softball Comples

The Southern Miss Softball Complex is in its 11th year of operation, and the Golden Eagles are enjoying their own field after spending the first three years of the program's reinstatement, playing home games at off-campus facilities.

On March 21, 2002, Southern Miss hosted Arkansas in a doubleheader for the Complex's first competition. An attendance of 668 was on hand to see the inaugural event.

The Golden Eagles fans were faithful throughout the first season at the Complex. With 19 home games, the opening year at the Complex attracted 10,714 people, recording an average of 564. Currently the highest attended event at the Southern Miss Softball Complex was a 7-0 Golden Eagle victory over then-No. 25 LSU on March 16, 2011.

In the fall of 2002, a team dressing and training building was placed behind the third base dugout. The building also housed the softball coaches' offices, before they were relocated to the Southern Miss Athletic Center. An indoor hitting facility was installed in January 2005. Additional batting cages are located behind the first base dugout. More improvements will be made in the coming years, as Southern Miss continues its campaign to improve athletic facilities on campus.

The irrigated outfield features 419 grass with rye overseed, and fencing encompasses 200 feet down the foul lines and 220 feet to straight center field. The dugouts have a "major-league" design and hold restrooms and ample storage space.

The final phase was just completed that included a permanent grandstand with 500 chairback seats as well as bleacher seating that span from dugout to dugout, the addition of a fully-equipped press box, concession stand, restrooms, training room facilities and a team dressing room facility.
