University of the Incarnate Word
Incarnate Word’s 154-acre campus is just minutes from downtown San Antonio in Alamo Heights. The Alamo Heights area is filled with a variety of tourist attractions including the Witte Museum, the McNay Art Museum, the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, and Brackenridge Park. Brackenridge Park is home to the San Antonio Zoo and the Japanese Tea Gardens, and is filled with trails and other scenic areas to run, walk, or just enjoy an afternoon picnic or barbeque. In addition to being located in one of the most picturesque parts of the city, UIW’s welltended grounds, trees, blooming flowers, and classic architecture, provide a comfortable environment to study, think, and just hang out with friends.
NIKE Softball Campers will train on the Cardinals softball field, which came ready for use in the late 1980s. In the winter of 2001-2002, the field was lighted for night play for the first time. That project, moved the fences to 200 feet down both foul lines and 210 feet to straightaway center field. Cardinals Field in the last decade has hosted numerous tournaments at all levels including the annual UIW Alamo Invitation which attracts more than 20 top collegiate teams from around the nation.
With permanent seating to accommodate 250 fans, the field is situated in a way that tailgating around the outfield fence has become a Cardinals tradition. The field is immediately adjacent to the McDermott Center.
The field itself is covered with common Bermuda grass, and like other outdoor facilities at UIW is overseeded with a combination of rye and fescue for winter play. A naturally wooded area beyond the outfield fence provides an excellent hitting background during games.
