Dallas Baptist University's Horner Ballpark
Apr 12, 2013

From the DBU Patriots site:


On February 15, 2013, the first pitch was thrown at Horner Ballpark and a new era in Dallas Baptist Baseball began. With the opening of one of the premier facilities in NCAA Division I College Baseball, the Dallas Baptist University Administration showed, once again, the strength of their commitment to a top-tier baseball program on University Hill.


In keeping with the architectural theme of the campus, Horner Ballpark exhibits a Georgian-style façade of dark red brick and contains up-to-date fan amenities throughout the stadium. With a capacity of 2,000 persons, Horner Ballpark contains four guest suites available for rental, a pavilion down the leftfield line for large groups, and party plazas along both sides of the concourse available for medium-size gatherings. With closed-circuit televisions throughout the park and the audio broadcast of the game piped into each restroom and suite, fans are never far away from the action at Horner Ballpark.


Designed by architectural firm HKS and built by FJW Construction, Dallas Baptist partnered with the premier companies in the nation in ballpark construction to build Horner Ballpark. The goal of all involved parties is to add value to the opportunities provided players at Dallas Baptist in their development both on and off the baseball field. With that, batting tunnels were added underneath the stadium for easy access behind the home dugout for use during practice and an Astroturf infield was installed to limit missed practice or game time due to weather. Coaches’ offices, a meeting room with video capabilities, and a reception area were all included in the design and construction of Horner Ballpark to aid players and coaches in their time at Dallas Baptist.
