The ONU Softball Field is the home of the Ohio Northern varsity and junior varsity softball teams. It was opened for use in the spring of 1982 and includes an enclosed press box and dugouts make the facility player and media-friendly during inclement weather.

The facility has seen numerous improvements during its history - many in the last few years. The outfield fence was moved in from its original 235-foot distance to the more standard 200-foot distance to all fields in 2002. Also, a new infield surface was installed, replacing the turface/dirt mixture that tended to get very hard during dry spells.

In 2005, a new Daktronics scoreboard was installed to help players and fans keep abreast of the action on the field. Ohio Northern won an Ohio Athletic Conference record of 35 straight home games from 1985-87 and won 50 consecutive regular season home games from 1983-87.

Focused on being a student athlete
