Ted A. Broer Stadium
The Nike Baseball Campers will train during this wekk of camp at Southeastern's home field, the Ted A. Broer Stadium. This state of the art baseball facility mimics a smaller version of Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox.
Broer Stadium was designed by Southeastern Athletics Director, Duane Aagaard, and former Southeastern baseball coach, Frank Yurchak. The two also received help from the New York Yankees grounds crew, with the end the result being one of the finest college baseball parks in the State of Florida.
The field’s name is in honor of Dr. Ted A. Broer, a world renown international author and founder of Health Masters. Dr. Broer is a major donor to Southeastern, and was given an honorary doctorate from the university in 2004.
The Fire has a 185-63 record at Broer Stadium since opening in 2004. The first game played was on April 7, 2004, as Webber International University defeated SEU, 7-5.

In August 2004, Southeastern would hire Head Coach Jason Beck, and the Fire would win its first national championship in baseball as Broer Stadium hosted the 2005 NCCAA II National Tournament.
From 2005-2008, Broer Stadium hosted four consecutive NCCAA II National Tournaments. During that span, the Fire won all four NCCAA II National Titles, and compiled a perfect 17-0 record in national tournament play.
In 2010, the Fire joined the NAIA’s Sun Conference and hosted their first Sun Conference game on February 26, 2010. Southeastern lost a close game to Embry-Riddle University, 7-6.
