Opened in March 2002, the Southern Miss Softball Complex is home of the University of Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles and houses the program for all of its practices and home match ups.

The Facility
Inside the confines of the Southern Miss Softball Complex, players have access to their player clubhouse which features all of the modern amenities such as a massive television for work and play, a player's lounge where the Golden Eagles can relax as well as study film and prepare for games. Each player has their own locker while a separate training room provides on-site care for the team to handle the bumps and bruises that arise over the course of the year.

Outside, fans can enjoy the game from the comfort of the chair-back and bench seating which were part of a stadium revitalization project that was completed prior to the 2010 season. Additionally, the complex features one of the finest press boxes in the southeast, another addition in the 2010 project.

For the players, more than 5,000 square feet of indoor weight room is available in "The Zone" down the third base line. The weight room area was opened prior to the 2014 season and features various free weights, workout machines, squat racks, etc. Funded through private donations, the 3,000 square foot indoor batting cages behind the first base dugout serve as the primary cages for all teams.

The Field
The irrigated outfield features 419 grass with rye overseed and is one of the finest grounds in the southeast. The dugouts have a "major-league" design and hold restrooms and ample storage space.
